May Creative Challenge | Wreaths


Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique.

This month, we're creating wreaths. Be sure to check the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers who have put their MFT stamps and/or Die-namics dies to work to create a wreath for you today!



This is such a fun challenge!  I picked up a alterable wreath at Michaels and wrapped it with some oatmeal yarn.  I used Mini Rolled Roses Die-namics and Rolled Flower Die-namics in Blue Skies and Banana Split Felt for the flowers and the leaves are made with the Royal Leaves Die-namics with Sour Apple Felt


I attached the flowers and leaves with pearl head push pins and added a little chocolate satin ribbon as well.

Don't forget to hop on over to the MFT Blog for a list of all the designers playing along in this month's Wreath challenge.  Find yourself inspired.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
