Hello everyone, my name is Joyce Schmidt design team member for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I was putting away the black, orange and purple of the Halloween season and was playing around with the Fantasy Florals in preparation for Christmas. I found this Grapevine wreath in my stash and decided it needed Poinsettias made from the Floral #2 (1774).
First, I wanted the wreath to look snowy. I painted a mixture of glue and acrylic paint onto the wreath so I could stick the chunky shimmery glitter. After painting it I sprinkled the glitter, I let it sit to dry.
I die cut all four of the shapes from the Floral #2 from red cardstock, and one set of each from green cardstock. Since poinsettias are not really a flower, rather a bunch of leaves, I only used the flower die not the leaves from this set. I used the larger of the 4 dies to act as my leaves.
I shaped the flowers on my foam mat with the back of my Elizabeth Craft Designs tweezers. Just for added dimension I distressed the edges of the petals.
After layering the flowers together slightly off set using my Kid’s Choice glue, I inserted gold stamens in the middle. Using hot glue, I placed the flowers onto the wreath. At this point it looked a little bare.
I got out my Trio of Leaves die (1464) and die cut some of these in green cardstock. I was the perfect touch to “fill in the holes”.
I hope you will try this project. It is very easy and can be adapted to use with any of the Elizabeth Craft Designs florals, for any season.
Feel free to watch our process video on this project HERE.
Thank you and I hope you have a great week.
