  • 18-inch eucalyptus wreath
  • Design Master Blueberry spray paint
  • Hotmelt adhesive
  • Dried artemisia
  • 8 large (2- to 2-1/2-inch-diameter) strawflowers in cream, pink, and burgundy
  • 1 bunch each of pink and purple preserved or dried statice sinuata

Instructions:

1. Spray paint the wreath. After the paint dries, glue small bunches of artemisia into the wreath, following the direction of the eucalyptus stems. Arrange the bunches so they suggest fan-shape bouquets spaced evenly around the wreath.

2. Glue a strawflower at the base of each bouquet, alternating colors. Press the flowers firmly but gently to make sure they're well secured to the wreath base.

3. Assemble the statice sinuata into bunches, keeping the colors separate. Glue one bunch beside each strawflower, over the artemisia bouquets.
