Picture

Supplies:
Dies or Punches:
Wreath Strip die (Cheery Lynn) used here … or similar dies or punches
Circle Nestabilities (or similar dies or punches)

Accessories & Tools: 
Glue
Paint brush
Sparkle Texture Effect (Martha Stewart) or similar snow texture paint (optional)

Using a small paint brush, randomly apply snow texture to pine sprigs. Leave some areas plain, some areas flat white and a few randomly placed lumps. Place on wax paper to dry.

Tip: If snow texture is too thick, thin with water or white ink refill.

Start gluing sprigs to ring. Use a rotation of three and kept repeating until the wreath was finished. Here’s how …1. Add a dab of glue to only the bottom tip of the sprig. Place first sprig so that it’s centered inside the ring.

2. Cut off the bottom of the next sprig and just use the top (approx. 2/3). Add a dab of glue to the bottom and place the sprig so that the bottom is just below the bottom of the first sprig, but angle the sprig to the outside of the ring.

3. Cut off the bottom of the next sprig and just use the top (approx. 2/3). Add a dab of glue to the bottom and place the sprig so that the bottom is just below the bottom of the second sprig, but angle the sprig to the inside of the ring this time.

Repeat this rotation of one full-sized sprig down the center of the ring, the next smaller sprig just below but angled to the outside of the ring, and the third smaller sprig just below the second but angled to the inside of the ring.

Once the wreath is filled in all the way around, finish by tucking the last sprig under the first one.
