Merry Pug-mas Wreath

Thanks for stopping by!

This week the design team ladies are sharing some holiday decoration ideas with you!

I made a cute little wreath!  I think I'll be giving this to my sister since she LOVES pugs!

This post is very picture heavy but I wanted to try and show you the step by step process to create this fun holiday project.

I used A Pug for the Holidays & Pattern Royale stamps for this holiday wreath.  

The first step was to stamp 5 1/4" x 4" panels of white cardstock with the Pattern Royale stamp.  I stamped two in red ink and two in green ink.

After the ink dried, I cut the panels into 1" strips.

I applied Scrap Happy Glue to the backside along the edges of each strip of stamped paper and then begin wrapping the strips around a foam wreath that I bought at my local craft store.

I covered the entire wreath in alternating colors of paper until the wreath was totally covered.

I used the masking technique to stamp the pugs on white cardstock.

Aren't they adorable?!?!

Even cuter after being colored with copic markers!

I covered the entire wreath with Glitter Mod Podge to seal the paper and make it sparkly. Then I wrapped the red ribbon around the top of the wreath before gluing the colored pug panel to the back of the wreath with Scrap Happy Glue.  

I glued punched snowflakes and the Spellbinder Fancy Tags sentiment panel on before adding the final bow.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my project.  The entire Design Team will be sharing their holiday projects all week so be sure and check back!
