Wreath #5 - Small Wreath in Blue (a delayed post)

I drafted this post weeks ago.  I promised our friend that I wouldn't post until after she had the opportunity to receive and open it--she didn't want to see it before hand.  I'm so happy it made it safely without getting damaged.  Here's the post I wrote at the time.

I found an 8 inch foam ring and decided to make the wreath with this little ring as I figured I could pack it well enough to safely make the trip across the country.  It was a challenge, no doubt!  This is 4" smaller than #4, which was a 12" ring and #3 was a 14".  Finished it measures 13" inches.  The recipient got to choose a color they liked so blue was the choice.  I couldn't use many larger ornaments on this small wreath, so it limited my choices.  All and all I am happy with the outcome.  I learned from this this one.

In process...

I had this Jewelbrite ornament in the plan, but ended up prying it back out.  It simply wasn't going to work in the design.  It took patience and perseverance, but if it was going to take a whole day to get it out--then that was what was going to have to happen!

  1. Snazzy color scheme! I made a wreath this afternoon; mixed colors with a couple of vintage figural ornaments from the 50s. It's so fun to watch the wreath come to life.

    1. Tammy,
      I know what you mean "it's so fun to watch the wreath come to life". I find there is a point in the process when it really seems to emerge!
