Black Friday Weekly Challenge ~ Cricut Circle

This project required two different cuts from Cricut Cartridges, the color black and something recycled or repurposed. I am not sure where this idea came from but since my family was drinking wine over the Thanksgiving holiday I took some of the corks and made the back of the wreath. I dug in the box of corks they keep for making "cork boards" and pulled out the same brand corks to assure they were the same size.

I made this wreath using a green from Basic Grey Green at Heart and SEI Alpine papers. I cut the leaves from Winter Woodland Cartridge.

I sprayed the leaves with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist which you can see better in this picture without the flash.

I cut the poinsettia's and holly out of the Christmas Cartridge on my Gypsy out of Bazzill cardstock. I used Candy Cane Stickles to make them sparkle. I used green rhinestones with the I Rock.

Here you can see the back of my wreath. I glued the corks together with regular glue because that is all I had at the time I was developing my idea but then I cut out some cardboard and stapled that to them for support. I layered the holy leaves so the darker and lighter colored green alternated. I wanted to add some ribbon, but haven't had time yet. I think this would make a cool ornament or something to hang on a door. I plan to put together a big one next. I stole all the saved corks from my parents!
