BasicGrey Kissing Booth Wreath

 Loving this wreath created by BasicGrey designer Amy Friend

ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES wreath form, ribbon, straight pins.

Amy used a 12″ Styrofoam wreath form and wrapped it in pale pink grosgrain ribbon.  There is no need to glue.  She  just used two straight pins to hold the ribbon on the back and then wrapped and secured it with more pins on the back when Amy came to the end of the spool.  She used the beautiful Kissing Booth double sided card stock to make flowers for the wreath.
Each flower is made up of hearts cut in three sizes.  The inner most ring consists of 4 small hearts, followed by a ring of 5 medium sided hearts and then 5 large hearts.  After cutting the hearts, she poked a small hole in each with the point of my seam ripper.  She then assembled the flower with a brad at the center, followed by a die cut shape, and then by the “petals.”  She folded over the edges of the petals to shape the flower.  Amy also varied the sizes of the flowers by not including the outermost ring on two of them to form medium sized flowers.  The smallest flower is simply made of a ring of small hearts.
Happy wreath making !!!
