Mini Wreath Trio

I am so super excited to share my mini wreath trio with you all! They have been finished for a few days, but I just couldn't figure out the best way to hang them. Once that light bulb popped on, I was back in business!

I love love love them! I want to decorate the house in teals and reds for Christmas this year, but I also don't want to look insane having Christmas decor up the first week of November. So by using a deeper rich red in the middle wreath, this becomes a great "transitional" autumn into winter set! I get the best of both holidays :)

Since they're so nice and small, they fit great together on one doorway. I ended up finding these great little 3M sticky hangers, that are very small and so not noticeable at all. I hung them in a lop-sided, uneven way with the ribbon just to give each wreath its own special space

That is the first wreath! I love the papers (all DCWV) and I got funky with some of the edging on my paper rosettes, or paper medallions, whatever you like to call them. It's a good mix of teals and winter blues, I thought.

Wreath #2

The middle wreath is my favorite! Probably because I used my favorite DCWV paper stack of all time, Colorful Life, for all of the reds on this wreath. I love that paper so much I hardly use it because it's so pretty. This huge painting I made a long time ago (remember this?) was actually inspired by the artwork in these papers.
It's hard to tell how mini those mini rosettes are, but they are MINI. This caused a lot of hot glue gun burns, just because there wasn't any room for my fingers to hold the little guys together. Totally worth it, I love the little ones the most... just wanna pinch their little cheeks!

The third wreath is the most 'winter' wreath, all the papers are snowflake prints. I even messed with the edging on one to try to make it look like its own snowflake. I had all the rosettes lean on the right side of the wreath, to balance out Wreath #1 which has its rosettes on the left side. And the red one in the middle has rosettes on both sides!

I hope you like my mini wreath trio! I am so happy to have it finally hanging on our living room door! If you want to make rosettes yourself, I have a great easy tutorial you can find right here

I'll be entering this into a Moxie Fab challenge, which is to use rosettes, my favorite... how could I pass that up?!
