Cosmic Carol Flower pattern and wreath tutorial. 

A while back I designed a star shaped 3D flower pattern. I worked up so many of them I decided to hold of on releasing it until I created a fun wreath to arrange the flowers on.

Wreath supplies and assembly:


You will need:

*Pre made Cosmic Carol flowers. I used 12 of them.

*Leaves. I used two Large and five small.

*Hot glue gun and glue sticks

*pins/needles to attach leaves and flowers for placement.

*blank wreath of choice. I up-cycled an old Glitter wreath from Michaels. It was on its last legs so I’d like to think I rescued it haha.

Pin flowers as leaves in desire pattern. One by one glue down flowers and/or leaves. I like to overlap the petals slightly. It’s really up to you on how the desired look and pattern turns out!  Have fun! Go wild with it!
