Christmas Wreath ...

Inspired by the very talented crafty lady Kath Stewart, Jackie and I had a go at her Christmas Advent Wreath - well, as you can see ours wasn't quite like hers but we both made a Christmas Wreath and thoroughly enjoyed it.  However, Mrs Numpty here didn't read the instructions a well as she might have, and we spent half the night looking for Christmas papers we liked which were double sided - no need - Kath actually says in her instructions to glue two pieces together for the top petals :-(  I'll know next time and at least I have sufficient left over petals for a whole wreath !!

We used wooden spoon handles to roll the petals into shape

such concentration!!

We each added Stardust Stickles, a golden shimmery poinsettia and some Venetian Red seam binding to our wreath.

Thanks so much for sharing this with us Kath - no doubt we'll be making more before the big day!
