Crafty Ribbons Advent Event Day 2

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Well, here is one of the projects I have been so excited to share with you, its a Wreath for day two of Crafty Ribbons Advent Event. You really should play along with us because there are some fantastic opportunities for prizes and some fantastic inspiration from the Design Team. Today our sponsor is Joanna Sheen who has given two Thomas Kinkade decoupage packs as the prize so well worth a try!
For this wreath I used a florists wire wreath which had two wires around the inside and the outside. I added a third wire myself within the two so I could fill out the wreath really well with the ribbons. I tied lots of different ribbons and organza fabric cut into small pieces anywhere I could until it was really full. I used these Jam Pot Collection of ribbons from Crafty Ribbons padded out with some organza fabric.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently. I started by doubling my tiger tail, and folding this over, then fixing the first ring with a crimp and covered this with the crimp cover. I then threaded m…
