Home for the Holidays Blog Hop

Hi Everyone and Welcome to the Home for the Holidays Blog Hop with The Robin's Nest and Helmar Design Teams.  If you are hopping with us you should have arrived here from Lisa Wilkinson's Blog, and your next stop will be Kate Nolan-Denham.  If you are starting here, then simply make sure you stop at each of the blogs listed in the linky below to see a gorgeous array of projects perfect for the holidays.

One of my favorite things to do in preparation for Christmas is to add a few handmade pieces around my home, be it a wreath, or decoration for the Christmas Table or Tree.


So today I have a very cute little wreath to share with you, that can be hung on a wall or used to create a candle center piece for the Christmas table or elsewhere in your home.  It is made using a Wreath SVG Cutting File I found on Etsy from Pepito's Room.





Supplies:-
1 x 12 x 12 White Snow Glitter Cardstock from the Robin's Nest
1 x A4 Piece of Gold Metallic Paper from my Stash
14 x Gold Metallic Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest Mocha Trail Dew Drops Assortment
Sheer Gold Ribbon from my Stash
Pine Needles Distress Ink
Home Made Olive Green Glimmer Mist.
Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
Helmar Gemstone Glue

I have layered the three cut pieces of the wreath cutting file together with the larger piece on top and stuck them together using the 450 Quick Dry Glue from Helmar.  I have then sprayed the entire wreath with home made Olive Glimmer Mist which resists the beautiful glittered pattern of the White Snow Glitter Cardstock and allows the Glittered Design to show through.  I have then also distressed parts of the wreath with some Pine Needles Distress Ink.

Once Dry I have added my bow tied from the Sheer Gold Ribbon and the Gold Metallic Dew Drops around the centre of the wreath to highlight the Gold Metallic Paper and Glitter from the White Snow Glitter Cardstock.  To adhere the Dew Drops I have used the Helmar Gemstone Glue which is perfect to use with the Robin's Nest Dew Drops as it dries clear.

To complete my center piece I am bringing in another traditional Christmas color by way of a Berry Scented Fragrant Candle so not only will this centre piece look good it will smell good too!
