Good Saturday morning. I love making old-fashioned Christmas projects using pine, berries and twigs. Earlier this week I posted a tag with a tree in a snowy moonlight scene. I used pieces the Impression Obsession Wide Tree to add extra dimension with limbs and branches to the main tree in the scene. There is a natural rounded curve to the branches on the Wide Tree and I was inspired to try my hand at making a wreath with it. You may have purchased this die for Halloween projects as it makes a perfect spooky tree. I thought I would share a few step by step pictures of how I created my wreath to give you an another idea for the die.
I cut the bottom of the main trunk off right at the point where the tree starts it’s rounded curve.
I die cut a circle that is about 1 3/4” across and cut the outer edge off with deckle scissors for a natural more natural look. I attached the tree sections around the base with glossy accents and overlapping to fill in the branches of the wreath.
When I was ready to attach the last section of tree I lifted the branches of the first tree attached and tucked the bottom edge of the last tree in under so it would be totally covered. Whew! That was a hart sentence to write so I hope it made sense.
Here’s the finished wreath.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend.
