'Instead of a Wreath'


Vicky decided she wanted to be different this year & shows us her project:


With Remembrance day past, I am now in full Christmas swing! Here is a bracket shaped display I made that I will hang with a ribbon on the inside of one of my doors (instead of a wreath this year). I used an older paper line from Meg's Garden - A Vintage Christmas (specifically the sheet of paper "Santa's Garden").

Using Helmar decoupage paste, I adhered the beautiful paper to a cardboard bracket shape that I had traced. I wanted to let this pretty paper shine without covering it up too much. It is truly my favorite paper from the "A Vintage Christmas" paper line!

Next, I added a 2Crafty chipboard baroque corner and some flowers and sprays using Helmar 450 quick dry glue. Meg's Garden also carries a variety of gorgeous embellishment products for the holiday season so be sure to check out the store.

Thanks for joining me on the blog today!
