Merry Christmas Wreath

I hope you have throughly enjoyed the release countdown this past week. I have another fun holiday project to share with you today. It features the fabulous Poinsettia Die-namics.

To create the wreath I wrapped a wreath cardboard frame in burlap. To secure the burlap I used a hot glue gun, I use the glue every fourth or fifth time I wrap the wreath to keep the burlap secure. I only use the glue on the back side of the wreath, which keeps the fron looking good.

I die-cut the poinsettias in Electric Red and Whip Cream felt. I tend to cut two to three of the large poinsettias, and two of the smaller ones to make one large poinsettia. This will give you a nice full flower. For the smaller poinsettias, I usually die-cut two or three. I adhere the flowers together with hot glue. For the centers I used Gold Sparkle card stock. I tried to cut felt for the centers, but the dies are just too small and the card stock seemed to hold up better. The leaves were die-cut in Jellybean Green Felt.

For the banner I used the Stitched Jumbo Fishtail Banner Die-namics and the Stitched Alphabet Die-namics. I cut two full sets of the banners, on one set I back the card stock with adhesive before I die-cut them. I adhere the letters to the front of one set of the banners. I then lay the pieces out with the letters facing down. I pull off the adhesive backing and place the Hemp Cord along the top of the banners. I then add the second banner on top of each piece and adhere them together.  Doing it this way provides a nice strong base for the banners and it holds the cord securely.

Thank you so much for joining me again today. I hope you learned a tip or two. Be sure to check out the MFT Blog to see all the amazing creations the design team has to share with you today. 


  1. Very pretty. Love the poinsettias.

  2. This looks like a fun project. I do not have a feel for the size. Can you tell me a diameter, please? Thank you.
