Artiste...Santa wreath

Santa wreath

Good evening everyone, I have been getting into the spirit of Fall and getting an early start on Christmas decor..not to mention Craft fairs.   So today I picked up a couple rolls of Tulle and a styrofoam wreath ring and started a cuttin.  I cut a bunch, and by bunch I mean ALOT of strips and started tying around the styrofoam wreath.   Two thirds of it I did red and the last third I did white.  

Ather they were all tied on,  I cut out the mittens from the Artiste cartridge from Close to my Heart..

the mittens at 4 inches, (which I ran through the Cuttlebug).. as well as the Ho Ho Ho, but the Ho Ho Ho, was cut 4 inches on white and 4 and a quarter in green to give it a shadow, and glued off center, and added a couple rhinestones ...gotta have the BLING,lol.

the boots, I could not find a cut for them, so I free handed them.
the eyes were made with circles from the Art  Philosophy cartridge..1  3/4 INCHES, for the  pink of the eye, cut in half and inked with Tim Holtz barn Red distress ink, and the eye balls ..1and 1/2 in white and 1 1/4 in black. The nose in pink at 2 inches and inked the same and hilighted with white gel pen.

Well that is about it..hope you like it. going to try to come up with other ideas for these wreaths.  Have a good night!!
