Fun Summertime Wreath with Smoothfoam®

Hello everyone and welcome to another adventure of The Flamingo Chronicals. Today I am sharing a project made using the new Smoothfoam® Ruled Wreaths and lots and lots of summery crocheted flowers.
 
So, I have this amazing friend who crochets these beautiful flowers for me -  she is a so talented. Not very long ago she had a bad fall down the stairs in her house and suffered a broken neck - so please say a prayer for her as she recovers. I have been using these flowers on projects for years and I had a whole bin of odds and ends left over, so I piled them all on my table for this project. I mean who doesn't love a wreath full of flowers????

The wreath's are marked in equal measurements to make it easy for you to place the items on your wreath so your project has that professional look. These things are pretty awesome so you are going to want to check them out for sure.



I used my Surebonder Low Temp Glue Gun and a sheer sparkle ribbon to cover the wreath and then started attaching flowers. I used the divided sections to make sure I had an even coverage of flowers and colors overall on the wreath.


 I used my glue gun again to attach some plain grosgrain ribbon to the back for a hanger. When working with Smoothfoam® a low temp glue gun is the perfect adhesive - plus you won't burn your fingers :)

Here are some closeups of the flowers.
