Flower wreaths made from paper and neoprene

Today I had to get some wreaths made up that had been ordered as gifts.  One with blue central pieces and one natural.  Since I had all the kit out, I tried to make a new version out of something other than old book pages that I usually use.  I wanted a fun and bright version with lots of bright colours.

The wreaths I make are usually very fragile and cannot go outside unless in a protected porch, so I made one out of something far more weatherproof, very thin neoprene foam.  It is a bit trickier to roll and staple, but I did get there.  Plus a hot glue gun works well on it and does not melt the neoprene, but my hands are really burnt after three wreaths in a go, those glue guns can be murder!
