Use the Vintage Photo distress ink and distress the edges of all the flowers with the applicator.Using the paper quilling tool tightly roll the cut fringe. Gently remove the paper-quilling tool; do not loosen the tension of the rolled paper fringe. Assemble the flower by layering and alternating the petals, threading it through the rolled fringe. Embellish the middle of the flower with a pearl.
Paste the coloured scellaton leaves on the polystyrene ring. Play around with the placement of the large and small flowers,once satisfied with the layout paste the flowers using a glue gun.
Fill in the gaps with the leaves.
Decorate the painted eggs with the diamante. Embellish the centre of the smaller flowers. Embellish the cross.
Paste the eggs onto the ring. Size and cut a piece of silver string, paste it at the back of the cross. Carefully turn the wreath around, centre and paste silver string. The cross will then hang in the middle of the flower wreath. Also size and paste the blue ribbon. Decorate by pasting a rose at the top.
