A couple of years ago, I made this wreath for my Mom for Christmas:
I posted about it here . I posted the link to Rachel's original Bake Shop tutorial there, but if you don't want to click back, here it is too. Then I made one for Valentine's Day that I guess I forgot to post :
I didn't pink the edges of these strips so they are a bit more stringy:
I went back immediately to order more and it was already gone. I'm waiting for the next shipment and stocking up! Think BOLTS!
I added a few pieces from my stash to round things out:
And then I started cutting with my pinking rotary blade. MUCH easier than using pinking shears! I cut my strips 2 1/2" x 6". There are 4 rows on the wire wreath and I wanted a full wreath so I filled them all. So when you are cutting and you think you have cut enough...cut more. :)
And even though my fingers are about to fall off this morning, it was worth it:
I love shooting in the morning. The light is so pretty, but this shot came out blurry so I sharpened it and de-saturated it:
