Burlap and Bloom Wreath

G'day! (as the Aussies say).   In my inimitable way, I couldn't simply follow the given design for this wreath kit and tweaked and added my own personal touches.

Everything you need to make a flat wreath has been provided but I prefer the more rounded shape.  I had some stuffing in reserve for making cushions, but used it on the wreath instead.  The flowers on the Stampin' Up! Kit work sheet had the flowers going up on the left, but I turned mine around to go up the right.  I also sponged and curled my petals and used some extra burlap ribbon to make the bow at the top.  I used a hot glue gun to attach the flowers to the wreath and to anchor the ribbon.

The  one above was made by the lovely Suzanne Tilney, a fellow demo and she's followed the instructions in the kit for a completely different look!  I've stolen her picture so you could admire the different styles!  I'm not sure which I prefer.  I love Suzanne's too!
