One of the things I enjoy about Baker Ross is their range of basics, and when I've received them I haven't felt quite so weary of trying something new. In a recent box of goodies to experiment with I had a pack of cardboard wreath rings which retail at £2.50 for a pack of 10 (that's just 25p each). Each wreath has a ready punched hole with some string for hanging, and although they were not quite as thick as I was expecting, they can be doubled - up (which also covers any paint residue or attachments). The ones I have made have also held up well to anything I've attached and stuck on them.
Extras I have used include paint (acrylic and normal metallic), ribbon, various flatback embellishments and stickers, toppers from a Hunkydory set (great size to stick on the wreath, or to make a centre feature), and naturals collection willow branches, just mixing and matching from my boxes as ideas came really. I decided instead of wrapping fabric or wool round I'd use normal acrylic paints - I did wonder what they'd look like on cardboard, but they've come out really well.
