I've created a Christmas wreath using the Royal Leaves Die-namics and the gorgeous new Mini Royal Roses. I photographed each step - here's the how-to! (click photos for a larger view)
Using Circle STAX, create two (or more) frames that graduate down in size.
Layer the two circles together. This gives your wreath more strength, and also gives a little shape rather than having the form be so flat.
Start wrapping with twine.
Cut a bunch of Royal Leaves. I love how many leaves this cuts with each pass!
I've used Tombow glue to start adhering the largest leaves to my wreath.
Continue layering on the Royal Leaves.
To add the last two layers of leaves I used glue dots. A glue gun would work well too.
Tie a length of ribbon and a big bow using satin ribbon around the top of the wreath.
I used the smallest of the Mini Royal Roses to cut four roses from red felt.
Group the roses on the wreath. Again, I used glue dots.
Add sticky backed pearls for a little contrast and classic shine.
I finished my wreath with a tattered and inked banner with a sentiment from Clearly Sentimental about Christmas.Here are the Die-namics I've used today:
