Wonderous Wreath Ornaments

Hello Happy November! How in the world did November get here so fast. I am now down to my last 2 weeks of maternity leave. :( That also went by super fast. So my crafting is probably going to take a hit once I get back to work, which is sad but I hope I can carve out a little time each week for some stamping. Today's project is what I had done the other week that I forgot to take pictures of. I had made up a Christmas basket for my church bazaar and added one of these ornaments plus a set of cards.

I am very happy with how the ornaments came out that I made a few more for my cousins and sister in law. These were made with embroidery hoops and some fabric I got at Michaels. I stamped the wreath image onto felt and heat embossed it so the color would stay. I realized after my first wreath that if I stamped it and ran it through the big shot the ink would rub off. I think I needed to let it dry longer or emboss it which worked out well. I colored some pearls with a red sharpie (or Blendabilites would work too) and placed a few on the wreath. I cut out the ribbon from felt as well and added a gold button. Then I used some of the snowflakes from the Frosted sequins. The first picture shows the ornaments before I decided to add the word "joy" to them.

I cut out "Joy" with the Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. This paper is so pretty! I used some real red ribbon so you can hang it from the tree. I realized after that I had Real Red cotton ribbon which I would have liked to use instead. But I forgot I even had it. (This is what happens when you have too much ribbon!!)

And lastly here they are all packaged up. I just put them in cellophane bags and tied them with Pear Pizzazz seam binding. I hope you enjoy today's project. These were so fun to make! I just love the Wonderous Wreath set. I have a card to share with you this week using this set again. It makes such pretty cards or gifts! :)
