Summer Wreath

I saw a lot of these paper wreaths around the blogs at Christmas time but never got around to having a go, so I thought as my Mum is giving her summer house a bit of a make over I would make one for her to hang in there.

I used Lap of Luxury papers from Stampin' Up! as the colours are really pretty and they are double sided so you get a contrast of colours throughout the wreath.

This is a close up of the papers, I sprayed it with some Champagne shimmer paint made up into a spray to add some sparkle, the hanging ribbon is Pretty in Pink satin.  This wreath is quite small I used a 4" ring , but I have been and got some bigger ones so hopefully I can share another project I have in mind soon.

The sun has gone and its really quite cold here again today!!  I'm off to finish the ironing as its back to school tomorrow and I still have some last minute prep to do for my class on Saturday.
