Floral Wreath

I felt like crafting with some roses this weekend, so last night I sat down and put together some silk roses, hydrangeas, mini apples and a few other fillers that I already had, to be made into a floral wreath.

This is my basketful of stuff :o) I usually throw everything in a basket and match stuff as I go..

I have had this rattan wreath base for..ermm.. I can't remember how long, like many other craft stuff that I have, waiting their turn to be used.. if ever! heee..

And these are the tools of the trade.. pliers for the wires, scissors and my ever faithful glue gun which is showing obvious signs of wear and tear :o)

The plan was just to prepare and put everything together, so I can sit down and make the wreath over the weekend but the problem with me is that when I have an idea in my head I just cannot stop myself :o) So I started making the wreath at about 11 o'clock last night after hubby and the kids have gone to bed..

and finished at 2 o'clock in the morning! :o) Yes.. I tend to be extremely focused when I set my heart on something (and hubby should be very thankful that it's just flowers and not diamonds :o)).

Pink and cream coloured cabbage roses and hydrangeas.. my favourite!

Pink and green satin and organza ribbons.. yummy!

What do you think? Do you like it? Wouldn't it be perfect for your shabby chic decor?:o)

Do you work on your craft until the wee hours too?
