Here are all of the goodies from the April 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit!!! Check out that Bonus Stamp Set!!! There are 18 images in that set and it’s greetings and flowers! SCREAM!!!! I love love love it! I was also super pumped about this wreath because I was in desperate need of a new wreath for the front door….it’s a little small but it works for me! 🙂
So my first worry with this kit was not having enough of the strips of leaves. I tend to get started wrapping them around and then getting about 3/4 done and running out. Let me tell you, there is no fear here! The leaves have adhesive on them already so it was super simple and I ended up having 10 or so strips left over when I was done! WOOT WOOT! I added the pretty flowers by folding them in half twice and adhering them on with the glue dots! Then I added the little chalkboard greeting and the ribbon. I realized (thanks to my downline) that I did the greeting wrong. The cord goes across the front and then you use the ends to knot it. Instead I looped the end into my ribbon loops and it was really long so I had to tie the ends together in the back to raise it up some. Ehh still works! 🙂 I love it!
After I tied the bow, I added a little loop of the ribbon on the back to hang it on my door hook! Isn’t it adorable???
Here is a photo on my door and here is another standing back father.
Is it too small? Be honest! Let me know in the comments below! I normally have a Stampin’ Up sign on the door as well so that my customers can easily find me for classes and all so that helps a little too!
After playing with this wreath, you could also buy a few refill kits and a larger foam wreath to create a bigger sized wreath. You could also use this wreath for in home decor like adding a pillar candle to the middle, hanging on the back of a chair at the dinner table, hanging on a door handle or along a staircase. Endless ideas with this adorable little wreath! I love it!!!
