Ruby Rock-It: From Our Home to Yours



 Hi Everyone,
Today I am sharing some more  festive creativity with the Christmas Dreams Collection.
I just love creating these wreaths!  For this one, I have gone for something a little shabby chic and winter wonderland inspired.   
 Ruby Rock It! Products:
Christmas Dreams 12 x 12 Paper Pad, Christmas Dreams 6 x 6 Paper Pad, Bella Flowers
  Other:
Styrene Ring (22cm), Tulle, Wide Ribbon (Wire Edged), Metal Dies - Floral Die, Stars & House, Leaves, White Berry Stamens

Create your own sweet wreath with colours to coordinate with your festive decorations.
The styrene rings can be picked up from craft shops for a couple of dollars. 
Start by tying strips of tulle around the ring.  Then randomly adhere a few leaves.  
If you have a leaf die - try die cutting a few leaves from the white glittered paper from the Christmas Dream pads, these would look lovely!  

Create berry vines - Stagger the heights of the berry heads and then twist the metal lengths together. (I picked these up from Kmart). Place around the ring and affix in place when happy with arrangement.
Attach a few Bella pale blue flowers around the ring.
Die Cut 3 x floral flourishes from coordinating paper from the 6 x 6 Christmas Dreams Paper Pad.  Position and attach in place.  

Die Cut a few different sized stars from the white glitter paper at the back of the paper pads.  Arrange and affix in place. 
Create a small house (I used a die) from coordinating papers from the 6 x 6 Christmas Dreams pad.
Attach this along the bottom inside edge of the ring.
Fussy cut a few bird elements from papers and layer amongst the foliage.
Finish off by adding a bow created from wire edged ribbon and attach in place.  

From our house to yours,
Happy Creating!
