Burlap and Blooms Wreath Kit

I’m just a little enamored of this new Burlap and Blooms Wreath Kit from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog. I’m kicking myself a but that I didn’t get it put together before my Stampin’ Up! workshop, so that everyone else could have seen how cute it truly is.

Here it is on my front door, layered over a colorful egg wreath from Target.  After Easter, I can easily just have the wreath on the door (it’s protected from rain and wind).Wreath-Title-ChaosServedDai

For some reason that I still can’t fathom, the hubs and the hooligans spoiled me last weekend. Saturday, they woke me with breakfast in bed (which I don’t love, but it was a sweet gesture and I sucked it up and ate my pancakes in bed, balancing the tray on my knees).  After that, they pretty much amused themselves all day and left me to play around in my craftroom…so I finally had time to take all the pieces for this kit out of the packaging.

The flowers were all simple to assemble, and I spent a happy hour putting it all together.

When I finished it, I kept moving it around the house, trying to decide where I liked it best. My living room, kitchen, and dining room are decorated in the colors of the wreath, so it looked great no matter where I put it!

You could arrange the flowers in anyway you like, of course, but I chose to follow the directions pretty much to the letter, so I could see how easy or difficult the process was. I believe it was simple enough that anyone with basic papercrafting skills could wind up with professional results.

See, I told you I was a little enamored!

  1. Love the wreath too and ordered three of them. Am thinking of using some poly batting under the wreath to give it dimension. Shall see how that looks. Mahalo for your post and hugs to your family for taking such good care of you!

    • I think that’s why I liked it layered with the egg wreath, Marilyn…the dimension! If you think of it, email me a pic with the batting added…I bet it’ll look fabulous!

I love reading your comments, and I'll very likely reply!
