Red Poppy wreath made using the Giant flower cartridge.


Hello, friends!

Today I have a home decor item that I would never have thought about making. However, I became enamored with the poppies and thought they would make a beautiful wreath. Now this project will take some time to make. It is NOT a quick throw together, but it is so worth it when it is done.

I made the wreath using the NEW Giant Flower cartridge. This is definitely one of my favorites of the release. Now this should not surprise anyone. You guys probably know by now that I love making 3D flowers!
I bought a pre-made willow wreath at Hobby Lobby. You will DEFINITELY need a hot glue gun for this project!
The flowers were cut out at 3 1/2".



This week I am giving away a 9 months cartridge!
