Good Morning!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Welcome to this month's 'Home Decor' Blog Hop! I hope you enjoy the project I created for this month's blog hop! It took some time, but it was a lot of fun to create! 


Build A Bouquet Wreath by StampingJo

If you need a March Break activity, this would really be a great project to get your older kids involved in. If they are old enough to use a glue gun, they can make these flowers!  The more help you can enlist to make the flowers, the faster this project will go wink but this project could be completed in a weekend even without help. I made most of the flowers while I sat and caught up on some t.v. viewing. laugh

I used all the items from the kit to make this wreath. First, I had to create all the flowers! I just followed the instructions provided in the kit to create each flower however I did not attach the leaves as instructed. The instructions indicated gluing the leaves onto the wire stems- but the wire stems were just going to be wound around the wreath and would have ruined the leaves- instead I glued the leaves right under the flowers themselves, and also glued some leaves directly to the wreath after it was completed. 

Here is how I made it:

StampingJo Wreath formI used the wire stems included in the kit to create the wreath base. Two wires were connected together to get the length needed, then I used a cylinder shaped jug to help shape it into a circle. StampingJo Wreath- wires bent around wreath form
I wound each flower stem around the wire base to keep them secured onto the wreath. 
StampingJo WreathTo help the flowers point the direction I wanted them to, I used pliers to bend the wire so the flowers would point forward. stampingjo wreathI also cut the stems shorter so that there wasn't as much to wind around the wreath. 
 
Wreath- StampingJo back of wreathOnce all the flowers were attached, I used the cotton ribbon that came with the kit to cover up the wire. It doesn't look that pretty, but it's really just to keep it from scratching the wall 🙂 Then I glued some leaves where I felt the wreath needed a few more. Build a Bouquet Wreath, stampin upThen I stamped with the Hello Life stamp set and die cut the center circle using the Circles Collection Framelit. I then added rhinestones from the Rhinestones Basics Jewels as a bling-y border (I used the long rhinestone strips). I then used some Old Olive Trim to hang the die cut from the top of the wreath (you could also just use the twine included with the kit!). 

 

I actually didn't use all of the kit, I just made enough flowers for this project for now 🙂 but now I have leftovers to create something else! 

Now to finish off the wreath, I also used some additional Cotton Ribbon to add the bow to the top of the wreath.

Now I have a gorgeous and colourful wreath to decorate my newly redecorated office! Love it!! 

Here is a list of the supplies I used to create this project:

 

 

In addition to these Stampin' Up supplies, you need a glue gun and wire cutters/pliers. On another note, I did not use the Build a Bouquet Stamp Set as the kit instructed because I don't have it, but for some added dimension to the flowers I would suggest getting the stamp set. It definitely would add a really nice touch to each flower.
