Sue Bowler’s 5 Tips for Stylish Wreaths

Elegant wreaths are in demand for wedding decor. We asked Sue Bowler, CBA, of the United Kingdom, to provide her top tips for memorable wreath decor.

Choose your colors carefully so they blend together well. Remember the Principles & Elements of Design!
Double-stuffing balloons allows you to create tints, tones and shades and a much wider color palette within one hue.  Use the Qualatex Color Library for inspiration. 
Create added visual texture with glitter balloons or greenery and flowers. 
Try to keep the shape of the hoop visually round.  You can easily alter the shape with the positioning of the balloons. If in doubt, take a photograph as you are making it to more easily see problem areas.
Pre-cover the hoop by spraying with paint or wrapping it with 260Qs.
