Here's the raw materials for the wreath. I cut off the mesh panels of my grapefruit (and potato) bags to save for crafting purposes. Then I cut 2 inch strips and threaded them back and forth down the center of a red pipe cleaner and scrunched them down until I got a full circle. I tried a number of different ribbons, but none of them looked quite right so I cut a strip from a green plastic bag and tied it in a bow for the bottom and added a jingle bell. Perfect!
I printed the adorable deer 3 times so I could fussy cut and add some dimension. Not so sure it's visible in the pic, but it's there. I'm adding this to the ornament challenge on the Gecko Galz FB Challenge Group. Lots of fun challenges there, and also a monthly challenge on the Gecko Galz Blog and the Fripperies and Butterflies Blog, as well.
And exciting news! I've been chosen for the Gecko Galz Design Team for 2015! I'm so excited to be stretching my creative wings using the fabulous vintage collage sheets and papers from the Gecko Galz Shop. (P.S. They're having a BOGO sale ALL MONTH LONG! WooHoo! Check it out!)
I'm also linking my ornament to the Unruly Paperarts 12 Days of Christmas Party. Come join in any time! You needn't post every day.
And also just sneaking in the Simon Says Wednesday ATG Challenge (insomnia has it's advantages), Eclectic Ellapu Vintage Christmas Not a Card, Recycle Re-purpose and Reinvent Dec/Jan ATG challenge, Crafting by Designs All Things Christmas, the Bearly Mine Christmas Decoration Challenge and the Altered Eclectic Countdown to Christmas.
