A genuine surefire simple wreath

Colleen here with a genuine surefire simple wreath you can make in a matter of minutes.

I wrapped burlap ribbon around the wreath and actually secured it with a pin hidden under the burlap.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the flowers and leaves.  Because I want to hang this outside I put my homemade decoupage on the flowers and leaves and let them dry.  I actually applied 2 coats to both. If you want to make your own decoupage it is very easy and inexpensive.  I buy my white glue at the Dollar Store and the mixture is 3/4 white glue to 1/4 water.  After you have mixed the two, shake very well and you are ready to use it.

Now just layer your flowers together and add a brad in the center to hold the flowers in place.  I like to play with my flowers to get them bent into the shape I want but this is entirely up to you.  I adhered the flowers and leaves in place on the wreath by using The Best Glue Ever.

The final step is to make your bow and glue that in place using The Best Glue Ever.

Now you are ready to hang your super simple wreath.
