Indoor Christmas wreath decoration...

The snow is still  quite deep on my small estate ..so again not going out
maybe get out shopping on Friday..well my back seems quite a bit better
the Tens machine & a Heat blanket (a mini electric blanket) my lovely
neighbour lent me seems to be working..sooooo I got to play all day in me
room making this Holly wreath..asked Hubby what he thought, answer was
"Makes me think of Death"..wrong answer Brian...

Anyways I,ll tell how it was made.. the base is the back board from a
drawing pad...you can use this as scrunge board too...drew round a tea plate
used circle compass for the inner.. the overall measurement is 7inchs.
across ...Sponged the board with TH Forest Mossdistress ink..
then sprayed over with Gold glimmer mist..you cant even see it..
with all the leaves on ...Holly is a W/ware punch K&CO paper..
to give the holly a frosted look I put glossy accents around the edges of the
Holly then sprinkled Twinklets Diamond Dust to give them a frosty look...
the red berries are from a Christmas bunch of flowers from last Xmas..
they were already frosted..flowers are cherry blossom WOC..
ribbon from stash, sentiment is from a piece of Kan Ban yonks old...
