Too Ambitious

My wreath is not going well. I have a vision of loveliness in my head but somehow the message gets lost before it reaches my hands. The poinsettia looks fine until I put it on the wreath, then it transforms itself into a weird wonky starfish type-thing.  I’m not entirely sure what’s going on with the holly leaves and I still need some berries.  The larger leaves have been sewn on, and the rest is loose because I can’t decide where it should all go…..

I wondered if I should start small? I found this and thought it’d be a better size for my first wreath. So far, so good 😀

    I’m working on a wreath like this at the moment and I’m finding it really difficult to get things just right. I’ve made leaves and stars and now I can’t figure out where to place them on the wreath. I’ll have to make up my mind soon!

      It’s so frustrating isn’t it? I keep googling images for inspiration but it’s not working!

        Have you seen the amazing wreath on Attic24 – it is so good – I’m not sure if I find it inspirational or a little bit depressing!

    The reply link has disappeared from under your post Lundygirl, had to do a new reply!

    I love the Attic24 wreath, but at the moment I find it depressing, lol.
