flower wreaths

My sister has been very unwell after an operation so I wanted to cheer her up and the best way I can do that is to make her something pretty and glamourous and sparkly....So after having a think and a look around I remembered this from Krafting kelly http://findingtimetocreate.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/floral-wreath-with-paper-flowers.html and decided to give it a go. I intended when I cut the first pink roses for it to be autumnal with pinks oranges and reds but my hands went to blues and purples and well this is what I ended up with





Over the years I have collected many flower files and Im sure you have too so theres no need for me to say use this flower use that flower ...i will say use what you have and see what you get...
After making this wreath I realised I had over done it on the flower making department (you can make tons in one evening if you're  not careful!!) and I had enough for another one...so another it was







All I made for this one to finish it was the lighter yellow daisies all the other flowers are the same, but what a difference the lower tone made....

Thank you for looking
Love debby xx

  2. Hi Debby,

    This is wonderful - so elegant! It looks like a tremendous amount of work, but totally worth it. I need to try this.

    I am linking you in tomorrow's post :)
