Swirled-Twirled Flower Wreath

Hello crafty friends, 
Today I am sharing a wreath I created for one of my Pazzles DT assignments this month. I used only one file from the Pazzles Craft room Library. It was the Napkin Ring from the Mad Hatter set.  Here is my project.

Here is my completed wreath.

Here is a closer view of the pretty bow. I picked the ribbon up at Hobby Lobby at 60% off the Halloween Decorations Isle.

Here is a view of all the flowers. I cut them all the same size. I simply twirled some tighter so I would have varying widths.

After twirling the flowers, I simply began hot-gluing them to the painted fiberboard wreath. This gave them a really good strong adhesion. I packed the flowers very tightly and after the glue dried, they are on there very firmly. I am glad I chose to use the DCWV patterned paper. I like that the white core adds some continuity to all the flowers even though they are all different patterns and colors. It is also a stronger, cardstock weight paper and that gave the flowers some added firmness. It is amazing that just one file can produce such a wonderful decoration. I hope you will get a chance to cut, twirl and paste some for yourself! This wreath will definitely be around for a few years!
