This project was started to learn how to use Deco Mesh. Start with a 6" wire wreath, using pipe cleaners to anchor the Deco Mesh, bundle approximately 6" of ribbon and anchor with a pipe cleaner, work around the wire wreath filling in the wire base. Fluff the ribbon after completing and shape as desired.
Use glass jar, glue a piece of floral foam inside. Cut out 2 strips using the Dazzling Diamonds Border die, anchor the border around the bottom of jar and apply pearls over the top.
Insert Christmas Sprig through the center of the wreath, run through the wire base to anchor the sprig, then insert into foam base of jar.
Butterflies are made with Blue Swirl Glitter paper (top layer), back layer is cut from matching Christmas Ribbon used for the bow. Butterfly body is cut from extra Poinsettia leaves and anchored with teal brads. Cut (2) extra bodies and glue to the backside giving support to the body, then use hot glue to attach floral wires.
Now decorate as desired. Decorating is a personal style. Some like less, some like more!
Having fun is the point!
