I cannot believe the holidays are upon us and this weekend I took some time to start my own preparations. First I worked on creating a wreath- if you have been reading my blog you will know that I really enjoy celebrating the seasons with a handmade wreath like here, here, here and here
Crafting with book pages are all the rage these days and I love using them to draw and paint on.
I started by drawing a simple flower (inspired by a poinsettia)
Using watercolors I filled the flowers with color.
and added details.
I created lots and lots of pages filled with flowers and leaves.
Next I cut out all of the flowers and leaves.
I used a styrofoam wreath and a glue gun and glued the flowers to the surface
I layered the flowers to create fullness.
And there you have it! A simple but beautiful handmade wreath using VERY few supplies and $$$!
