PDE Crafty Playtime Linky Party #7: 3D Projects

It's time for another linky party over at Pause Dream Enjoy.

Since I moved into my new house, there has been one spot over my server that has been bothering me.  Finally, I thought a spot for a wreath that I could change to match the season or celebration would be perfect! I have seen these beautiful "Mesh" wreaths all over Pinterest lately and decided to make an Easter Wreath. I love the color of a dark purple against Easter Lily's.  So here it is...
 A close up of my wreath. I LOVE how it turned out. 

Be sure to head over to Pause Dream Enjoy and check out the amazing projects by our Design Team.

Materials Used:
18" Wire Wreath
Purple Mesh 10 yard roll of 21"
3 Easter Lily flowers by Ashland Spring Flower Mix

So I am loving this challenge.  Did you know that March is National Umbrella Month? Well this week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are celebrating just that.  We challenge you to  include an umbrella somewhere's on your project...

See....Easy Peasy!
