Completed Beau Chateau Wreath

A few days ago, I posted the steps I took to make this Beau Chateau wreath. I finally had the time to complete the wreath. My wreath is only 5 7/8" in diameter. This is the second wreath I have done like this - the first one was made using the Everyday Elegance DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. 

I wanted to show a little closer picture of the elements on the wreath - this picture shows the flowers on top - with the glimmer brads in the center and bits of marina mist and pink pirouette taffeta ribbon tied around muslin and then hot glued between the flowers. My flowers are all layered in threes.

This is the side of the wreath. I decided to do a combination of vanilla and chocolate colored jumbo brads in the center of these flowers rather than using all the same color - and because I am running low on the vanilla colored brads. :)
Once the flowers are all punched, sprayed, scrunched and then opened back up again to dry - the process to finish the wreath doesn't really take that long. Covering the wreath with the muslin gives a good surface for the hot glue to adhere too - and I doubt these flowers are going to fall off anytime soon.
I hope you have enjoyed watching this project take shape and I hope you will try this one too.
Thanks for stopping by
