DooHickey Floral Wreath

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  Now it's time to try and catch up on a few things.  I've been working on this wreath for a little while and finally finished it.   I thought the DooHickey dies are not only so pretty used as basically flat flowers, I thought they would also make some terrific 3D flowers.  The flowers are actually a pure white out of a pearlized paper, but couldn't get the photo adjusted, so they look kind of pink!

Cut out a chipboard circle about 7 1/2" across for the base and covered with a printed paper.  Used the following DooHickey dies that I got from Diana, of course, at Magnolia-licious.

#2 Peony Petals
#6 Bon Voyage Foliage
#8 Doily Flowers
#15 Poinsettias Flowers

Click on each die or click HERE to go directly to the DooHickey Die category at Magnolia-licious.

Also added some gold cording, pearl brads, gold microbeads and peel off wording and stars.  I use Ultimate or Tacky glue for the flowers and Glossy Glaze or Crystal Lacquer for the microbeads.

I'm not too keen on actually lighting candles around paper flowers, but this would look nice as a candle ring too....FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES ONLY!!!  :)

For inquiring minds, I've made up a little chart to show which dies, how many pieces and how I cut them apart.  Add some shaping and sponge around some of the edges with ink, glue them together and you have your 3D flowers.

These dies will make some great spring flowers too, just need to do some different colors!!!  Thinking Valentines, Easter and Mother's Day!!!

Don't forget about Sunday Sensations from Magnolia-licious!!!  Click HERE to go to Jacque's blog to find out all about it and sign up!!!

Wishing everyone a healthy, safe and fun New Year!!!  Enjoy every single day!!!

Okay Patti Jo, I just got my mojo back. It's been so long since a made flowers and now you have inspired me.
Your wreath is unbelievably beautiful. I love the combination of flowers. It looks so gorgeous with the white roses in between or should I say Peony's. What a super idea to put those doily flowers in as well. The Peony petals make good flowers. You are such an enabler. Now I have to find money for those DooHickeys.
My front door looks a bit plain heehee. Super job Patti Jo.
Hugs Maz
