Barbwired's beavy of beauties also know as followers..... Today is the last day to pick the prize you want. In case you missed the post, look here. Just want you darlings to know I love having ya here with me!
Now let's get some spring and Easter in this barbwired nest! How about this?
I wanted something light and soft.
I began the process by making the paper flowers.
You probably all know the steps but here is a quick tutorial.
I made these in all sizes.
I used everything from salad plates to pill bottles to draw my circles.
They are super duper easy.
I had paper that had a pattern on one side and a coordinating solid on the other.
I used both pattern and solid for the centers.
Once you feel you have enough of these, it is time to move on to the ruffles.
I ♥ ruffles!
I took a soft white fabric and tore three inch strips.
I wanted to tear them to get a frayed edge.
Then I used my machine to create the ruffles.
I made eight ruffles.
The went from 3 inches wide and 3 ft long
to about 2 inches wide and 1 foot long.
I had a styrofoam wreath.
I used the ruffles and a hot glue gun,
wrapped the ruffles all around the wreath and hot glued them on.
After covering the wreath with ruffles, I began hot gluing the flowers on.
I nestled them in the ruffles. I went from large size flowers to smaller.
I then applied a polka dot ribbon with the hot glue to hang the wreath.
I decided to hang it on a large mirror in our living room.
Ruffles, flowers, polka dots...what could be better!!
It makes me smile!!!
I hope you like it too!
Now off to the derby!
Barbwired Blessings to you!!!
Got a party going on at:
