Festive Farmhouse Wreath | Let's Get Hopping #15

Hello and welcome to another Let's Get Hopping Blog Hop. This months theme is Chrismas, anything except a card. 

While cardmaking tends to take up most if my crafting time at this time of the year I always make sure I set aside some time to create a Christmas decor item and this years project is a wreath. 

Using an embroidery hoop as the base for my wreath was inspired by a project created by Val Moody last year and the Festive Farmhouse DSP goes perfectly with the natural wood of the hoop.

To create the centre panel of the rosette I embossed a circle of silver foil with the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impression Embossing Folder and then I sponged it with Craft White Ink. Once the white ink had completely dried (I left mine overnight) I used a cotton ball dipped in rubbing alcohol to remove some of the white ink leaving a distressed/aged look. 
Here's a close up of the Tin Tile panel.

Next up is the uber-talented Jennifer Frost. I can't wait to see what amazing project she is sharing today

  1. That's an interesting project. Despite the shape I wouldn't put embroidery holder and a wreath together. It's a fabulous idea. The tile emboss folder is so good, isn't it. I love all the projects I saw with it.
