Free Quilled Wreath Pattern
I love putting up wreaths, don't you? This wreath serves double duty as an ornament too.
For this pattern, I used my quilling to embellish punched items.
I took my 2 and 1-1/2 inch circle punches to create the actual wreath.
Next I punched leaves from various green papers. I arranged the leaves so that the covered the entire wreath.
Punch a small hole in what will be the top of your wreath and put a jump ring through it. This will be where you will attach the ribbon for your ornament. I find it easier to put it in before I add the remaining embellishments.
Make approximately 20 - 3 inch (7.6 cm) Green Shaped Teardrops
This is the fun part, arrange them on the card. For this card I made the following arrangements:
Group 3 spiral roses at the top and place about 5 - 6 green teardrops between and around the spiral roses.
Group 3 spiral roses at the bottom and place approximately 3 green teardrops between the spiral roses.
Add 1 spiral rose with 2 green teardrops to the middle left of the wreath.
Add 2 spiral roses with 3 green teardrops to the middle right of the wreath.
I added a few green spirals for good measure and there you have a beautiful wreath. This wreath is perfect for Christmas in greens and reds. It is the perfect addition to a card with a bonus ornament gift for friends and family.
For some added interest, make your card look like a door so that it appears that the wreath is hanging outside on your door.
Why not give it a try?
