{Repeat} Poinsettia Pallet Wreath

Happy Hump Day y'all! This week has been so busy. I've had a mile long to do list, and just not much time for any creative fun. I'm crossing my fingers for a bit of time this weekend. The creative wheels in my mind have been going haywire! I need to get some stamps to paper, stat! For now, I really wanted to take a look back at the poinsettia pallet wreath I created. I'm still SO in love with it, and even have it hanging up! It's too pretty to tuck away until Christmas. I shared this project back in August, but I couldn't help but put it on repeat.  Take a look at the photos & a bit of instruction below. Hope you enjoy seeing it again!
   

 

I started out by punching with the Festive Flower Punch, which will be available September 1st, 80 times. I'm not crazy. Ok, maybe I am, but it was WORTH IT! Surprisingly, it didn't take much time at all, and only took 6 sheets of Real Red cardstock. The centers are done with Crushed Curry, and topped off with Pearl Accents.
 

Before hot gluing my poinsettia petals together, I shaped them with my fingers, fluffing them up a bit after gluing them together. I found a cute 12"x12" wooden pallet decor piece at my local craft store, and arranged the poinsettias in a circle. I hot glued them to the pallet.
I completed my wreath with a "merry" banner. I did this on vellum, with gold embossing--perfect! I used the Larger Than Life Alphabet and Numbers Photopolymer Stamp Set, and gold heat embossed that. The banner with the gold was the absolute perfect touch! I worked with it a bit to make sure it had a wave so it really pops off of the pallet.
 

I'm absolutely IN LOVE with how this turned out! It will look so great with my holiday decor. I'm thinking of adding this to my class schedule. What do you think? Would you love to add this to your Christmas Decor this year?
