Something for My Door

We got a beautiful Ice storm it's pretty to look at but deadly to walk around in or even drive
So I'm happy to be one of the lucky ones that still have power and able to be warm
Some people will be without power for 72 hours Yikes !! Crappy time to have that happen to you for sure I Hope that those that don't have power get it restored alot quicker then that time line!!
I wanted to make a new wreath this year for my front door it is a boring brown door that will eventually change in the summer I'm guessing but there is so much to fix up in this old house we won't worry about the Blah colour for now lol.
I've used my Recollections 12 by 12 and cut up a whole bunch of sheets into 4 by 4 squares normally these would be the last sheets I use to make cards with but this way they are the 1st ones I've used in trying to use what I have on hand. The Ribbon I bought 2 years ago and pulled it out of my Christmas boxes to find this yummy gold. The petals of the gold flower is trimmed ribbon and melted the edges with a candle the curly q's are the wire trim of the ribbon wrapped around a pencil then glued in place with HOT glue. The only things I bought to finish this was the little red balls and they are holding all the petals down and a few extra hot glued in place. This didn't cost to much to make but it did take a while.
I used about 100 little 4 by 4 squares on a piece of foam board.
the bottom to layers are Flat to add extra depth and there is two layers
