We are half way through our week of beautiful “wreaths” and Lynne’s is a breadth of fresh snow air. Lynne Forsythe brings to the Crew her wonderfully creative use of color and with her shabby chic style. Lynne’s Snow Wreath inspires us that you don’t have to choose red and green when you create projects for the holidays. Out of her box came a unique mixture of turquoise, purple and natural elements.
“When I opened my box filled with Canvas Corp Canvases and Petaloo Flowers and Trims, the first thing that popped into my mind was Winter, all the beautiful hues of Teal and Purple. I had recently purchased some silver snowflakes from one of the big box stores and knew they would be the PERFECT addition to my wreath. I then pulled out a Grapevine Wreath from my stash and let the creative process begin. I knew I wanted to create a half wreath, something a bit different from the norm.”
Lynne seldom creates a project that does not include at least one flower, so this was the perfect challenge for her. Starting with a small Petaloo flower she has turned the focal point flower into a large flower by simply starting with a Canvas Corp Burlap flower…slipping in lace and snowflake pieces colors to create her own amazing flower. The use of vintage ornaments or holiday decor in your pieces brings out that shabby chic and just the right amount of glitter needed. She wrapped the canvases with pieces of Canvas Corp Burlap, Petaloo Fancy Trims and Vintage Lace tied with Canvas Corp Jute and accented them with various Petaloo Flowers, Textured Blooms, Velvet Hydrangeas, and Chantilly Mixed Blooms. She then stacked the decorated canvases on the wreath.
“I hope you enjoyed my “Snow Wreath” and that it has inspired you to think outside of the box when creating your holiday wreath to adorn your front door, mantle or wall.”
