“Burlap and Blooms” Simply Created Wreath Kit Class ...

Yesterday the “Crafty Wenches” got together for a craft off!
Sally’s craft class is called the “Crafty Wenches” and we get together every fortnight. Usually Sally, has between 4 and 10 crafters attend, and yesterday we had mother/daughter team Liz and Sophie, Anne and myself.
Monday's theme was the new “Burlap and Blooms” Simply Created Wreath Kit {NZ$35.95 #133333}, and to be fair you need to allow 3 hours for this gorgeous project ...
 

The Kit comes complete with everything you need provided; however I did add a couple of gorgeous butterflies to my Wreath from the “Papillon Potpourri” stamp set.
My favourite part was putting together the fringe flowers, these are genius, and so easy to replicate, with some DSP and the new Fringe Scissors {NZ$19.95 #133325}.
The wrapping of the Burlap around the flattened Wreath is very therapeutic, and quite easy to create such a stunning rustic/shabby chic piece of art.
I love the way that you can {carefully} remove the flowers to change up the Wreath for any season or any occasion … think Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Easter …

Here are some step-by step photos I took {one handed!!!}...
























This Simply Created Wreath Kit has recently been released, in the new “Celebrate The Everyday” Occasions Brochure, available 28.01.2014 till 30.06.2014

The only downside of making this gorgeous Wreath, is that I burnt my fingers terribly with the HOT glue gun!!!

If you look closely at the Wreaths made by the ladies, you will see they have added their own individual touches ... can you spot the Dragonflies, Pearls, Rhinestones and Decorative Leaves? 
♥ that we each started out with the same Kit, yet each of our projects turned out so differently!

I hope you have as much fun making your "Burlap and Blooms" Wreath as we did!
