Petaloo flowers and other embellishments hold using decorative pins.The wreath is easily assembled with no glue. Therefore after we take our wreath off the door we may easily disassemble it and use Petaloo flowers, Ornate Metal Keys, Ornate Metal Key Holes and other embellies for other projects!" -Olga

This project was really fun to put together. I thought I’d work with the autumnal yellows orange and green papers from Graphic 45s Happy Haunting collection to compliment the gorgeous fall coloured Petallo flowers and leaves that I’d picked out for the project.
one was to colour the edges of each of the MDF basket. I used Vintage Photo distress ink and
got in a right mess lol. It all
washed off though.
Then using each piece as a pattern I cut out the papers for each and using Xyron Double Sided High Tack Tape I decorated each piece.
was easy to assemble as all the pieces slot together really easily. I just had to be careful not to push
holes in the papers that cover the outside pieces.
assembled I added the flowers and leaves to each lid using Xyron high tack adhesive
dots . To finish I added some
ornate metal key holes, ornate
metal label holders with sentiments in and some black brads. I also added a flower and two
ornate metal keys on each side of the basket for a little extra detail.
I have to do now is eat the grapes, fill
with chocolates and hide it from the children. ;)
