The winds are whipping the leaves all over my neighborhood right now and the temperature has dropped about 30 degrees in the last couple of hours. I do believe a winter storm is heading my way any moment now.
I think I'll enjoy telling you about this summery wreath and just pretend it's not colder than cold right now.
I loved playing with the mix of products in this way, I'm usually all about scrapbooking and cardmaking, so using the Maya Road items on a wreath was fun. My two favorite parts are the metal Big Leaf Charms and the White Vintage Butterfly Transparencies. Tucked here and there between the flowers, I love the texture and dimension they added. But then, there are the Vintage Stained Wood Buttons, tied off with a bit of Crafting Jute Cording in Natural, those look nice too...
I used multiple flower die cuts from Sizzix to create all my flowers. I attached many of the flowers to the foam with our Cream Pearl Ball Pins, Antique Gem Pins, and a few of them I added a Clear Vintage Raspberry Bead to the center for a really nice touch of dimension.
Finishing off, I cut 4 inch lengths of the Vintage Burlap Trim in Lilac and Sunset. I folded them in half and tucked them in here and there to add even more texture. I loved how bright and cheery this turned out, it was fun to try the Maya Road products out in a different venue. I'll be doing that again!
