Door wreath

Post by lyndaejane on Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:29 pm

This is the wreath I made at the workshop last week:



It was made from scratch: we covered the base with moss; I made the stars with willow twigs and everything was wired or pinned on. There are bark stars and a few natural bits and pieces, and then the wispy twig stuff was fixed over the top.

Never done anything like this before!

Looks lovely Lynda. Oh the days when Malcolm used to make these from scratch too. Our old house had a cellar and he would spend ages down there having collected everything needed and then he made them for a friend who had a market stall so was supplied with everything.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

That's lovely, I like the natural look rather than bright shiny stuff.

I could have added ribbon, Di - she had loads to choose from - or cranberries: she showed us how to preserve them to make them last the season.

Light a tealight and let it burn until all the wax is molten. Spear your cranberry on a cocktail stick and roll the cranberry round in the molten wax. Also works with all sorts of berries, but they must be reasonably solid ones to start with.

That's a bit special, Lynda, nice work. I thought your cone things were a bee or butterfly to begin with! Then I realised it's just the way you've arranged them.
A longer string next year so that the centre is over your window LOL

I realised afterwards that I should have fixed the wreath-hanger below the window, Karelyn - then it wouldn't have blocked out what little light we get through the glass.
