July 27, 2007, Newsletter Issue #57: Flower Wreaths With Candle Tarts

Tip of the Week

Floral wreaths always add a touch of natural, country charm to a décor. To make your floral wreaths do double duty, why not make one with the addition of scented candle tarts? This way your wreath looks great and acts as an air freshener as well. To make your own wreath from scratch, purchase dried flowers and a grapevine wreath or swag from a local craft supply store. You'll also need a hot glue gun, glue sticks and some candle tarts. Cover a table with newspaper and have all your supplies at hand. Now cut your dried flowers to the desired lengths. Slowly begin gluing your dried flowers to your wreath in a pattern you find appealing. Creativity is the key here and you can add as many or as few flowers to your wreath as you wish. Now glue at least a half dozen scented candle tarts to the wreath, spreading them out for symmetry. For a really interesting twist, choose scented candle tarts in the same scent as the dried flowers you have chosen. Try using dried Eucalyptus and similarly scented tarts, or dried roses with a rose scented tart.
