I posted a tutorial on my blog awhile back on how I made these wreaths. If you would like to see it you will find it here. I made this wreath the same way as I made my last wreath except that I didn't layer the medallions because I wanted to try and get 2 complete wreaths from one pack of dsp and it worked out perfectly. I was able to complete 2 wreaths using the rosette die and one full pack of the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper (from the holiday catalog).
I have a few close up photos of my wreath shown below. The ghosts are upside down owls and the bats are punched out using the bat punch and I just added some eyes on the bats using my white gel pen. I tied some ribbon through the centers of the buttons. I purchased the buttons from the Stampin' Up! clearance rack awhile ago.
Here is a photo of the back side of my wreath. I've had some questions in the past about what the back side of my wreaths looks like and this time I remembered to take a photo of it. I do use card board for my backing, but since one layer of card board isn't strong enough I cut out 2 layers and I glue them together, works like a charm. If you want you can get fancy and cover the card board with ribbon or something, but I don't because I want to make sure that my lollies/medallions are glued really well onto the cardboard wreath base.
I tried something different with the hanging loop on my wreath and I think this worked out so much better. I took a piece of twine and I tied it off leaving a loop for hanging the wreath. Once I had my loop made I took the two ends below my knot and threaded them through the cardboard (you can even get the twine behind the medallion if you wanted) and then I tied off the ends. Once my ends were tied off I was able to push up the ends up in-between the card board wreath frames and then I was sure to secure it using lots of glue.
Have a great day! I'll be back tomorrow morning with my 52 Christmas Throwndown blog post.
