Door Knob Wreaths...

So I created something really cute!! I received a package of Rosette trim by Webster's Pages from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and wanted to go outside the box and NOT use it as trim on a card. We all want more for our dollar, and finding different ways to use something will give us more variety for the products we buy.

I created the most darling door knob wreaths with jingly bells and it was so EASY! You can also use it as a miniature hanging wreath on the wall! My tutorial is below and I encourage you to make these for yourself or as gifts!

Supplies needed:

24 inches white or orange Seam Binding  (I hand-dyed white seam binding with an Orange Copic Marker)
Black cardstock
Spider Embellishment (Sticker or charm)
Black and Orange Bells
Beacon Adhesives 3-in-1 Glue
16 inches 20 gauge wire
Wire cutters


Thread wire through the back of the bloomers trim:

Cut Scalloped circles and Standard circles as shown in the diagram:

Pull wire tight until the circle of bloomers fits your cardstock circle. Twist wire. Glue cardstock circle to your bloomers circle:

Fluff bloomers and cut off excess wire:

Tie seam binding around bloomer circle:

Add bells:

Add bow and embellishments:

How cute is that?? In the bloomers package you get 5 colors, so you could make 5 gifts for minimal cost!! I just love that!!  Here is my second Door Knob Wreath I created with the Aqua colored Bloomer:

The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store carries a versatile collection of supplies for your papercrafting needs from Spellbinders dies, JustRite Papercraft stamps and other stamps, Ribbons of all textures, styles and thicknesses, beautiful papers from a multitude of companies and lots of fabulous embellishments.
