Now that all the business is out of the way...........Let's get to the project I have prepared for this blog hop for Day 6!

Here is my project.


For my last project on the blog hop, I made a Wreath.

Here is the final project.  It is now hanging on my front door.


I used SCAL and cut out a big 'donut' circle.  I used white poster paint around the edges to make it look like snow.  I then cut out branches using my Cricut and SCAL using SVGCuts '3D Wintergreens' set.  I added some white poster paint to those as well to make it look like more snow.
Using the same '3D Wintergreen' set, I cut out quite a few holly's and poinsettia's.  I used the white poster paint on EVERYTHING (except the candle) so I won't keep repeating myself.  But after I used the poster paint and it all dried, I put the flowers together and adhered them all with glue and pop dots.


Here is one poinsettia close up.


Here is the holly close up.

The candle was a freebie from SVG Cuts.  I placed it at the bottom of the Wreath.

Here I had added green stickles to the center of the poinsettia and also to the holly berries.

I also traced the flame with orange stickles.  and shaded the candle with a dark yellowish orange ink to give it dimension.  I inked the candle plate with silver ink.


Here is a couple more close ups.


This isn't a very good picture, but there it is on my door.  I really had fun making this.

I sure hope you have enjoyed my project.

~Happy Crafting!  And Happy Blog Hopping!!
