Holly Jolly Wreath

Want a chance to win the stamp set I used in today's project? Be sure to leave a comment on yesterday's Stampendous Saturday post

To create the wreath, I pulled out a wooden craft floral wreath ring from DIY bangles. Using inexpensive yarn from Lion Brand Yarn I began wrapping the wreath ring. I wrapped and I wrapped and I wrapped. I seriously underestimated how long the wrapping part would take, lol!

Next I pulled out my Stampendous Jumbo Cling Holly Stocking and began stamping holly leaves on kraft cardstock. I colored them with colored pencils, added highlights with a white sharpie and cut them out. 

Next I adhered pieces of wire to the back of the holly leaves so that I could tuck them into the yarn. I had the idea that I could interchange the ornamentation on the wreath for the seasons. 

All that was left to do was to add a fancy bow and hang it up! Just in time for Christmas! 

I created this for the following challenges:
Inspired Me Fridays- linky party
PaperTake Weekly- I'm Dreaming of a Holly Jolly Christmas
