Good morning friends,
Today is my DT project for Fantastic ribbons: we were asked to create a festive home decor project and you know how much I love creating wreaths! Nothing is being posted on the blog at the moment, but I had made it so decided to post it here anyway.
I started out with a plain vine wreath, which I decorated with twisted lengths of traditional red and green satin ribbons, fixing them at the top, bottom & sides with wire. I then sewed buttons to the bottom & top to create a hanger. To finish I die cut 5 poinsettias (Spellbinders) and glued them over the wired ribbon.
This is an indoor wreath..good fun to make!
Whilst on the subject of wreaths, I haven't shared my front door wreath this year..and it's been up since December 1st! Actually for those of you who were following me this time last year, it's the same wreath. I usually will keep a wreath I've made for at least a few years, maybe make some changes, but as long as I still like it and it's still looking tidy, I'll keep using it. This one will stay up until the end of the month and then be replaced with a simpler winter wreath for the rest of January. I love having a seasonal wreath on my door and it's something I've done for many years.
Are you all ready for Christmas? I still have Tom's card left to make, but I'll wait until he's back in work on Monday and I can concentrate. However, after we had a lovely morning today...visited local garden centre, had a coffee, went to the hen farm to restock food for our girls...I had a lovely afternoon crafting whilst watching the horse shop from Olympia on TV! I made a table centre-piece from some dies I got a few months ago and have been excited to finally use...As long as I can get a decent photo, I'll post it on here tomorrow.
Bye for now and thank you for stopping by,
Love and Hugs,
