I’ve seen a couple of these wreaths – the first one I saw, and the one I used as my inspiration, was by Michelle Suit. When I saw hers, I immediately saw a home-spun Christmas wreath. The wreath part came quickly and easily, but it took more than a few days to decide how to embellish:
Yes, you’re right – they’re clothespins. Others have chosen to hot glue them to a frame, but as much as I love how easily and securely hot glue attaches things to each other, I also have issues with the stringy bits and the hot globs that inevitably stick to my fingers. I figured a clothespin could just as easily be pinned to a form and that’s what I did.
The new Champagne Glimmer Paper is fabulous – as I said, it took me a while to figure out that’s what I needed. And if you haven’t tried the new tulle (this is Cherry Cobbler) well, Just You Wait, Missy!! Fabulous!!
This wreath measures approximately 16″ across. I’m offering something new – a private class. You choose the time and place and invite the guests, and I’ll bring the party! Cost is $30 for all supplies. If you are interested in the wreath as a kit, leave your contact information and I’ll be glad to work out the details with you.
