MAKING A FESTIVE WREATH
I popped over to a friend’s place and she gave me the wonderful task of assembling the ‘do-it-yourself’ festive wreath.
The Aquarelle wreath-making kit contains 100% natural products – European fir, cones, cinnamon sticks, twigs, and eucalyptus leaves.
I began by laying newspaper on the table. Then …
The 4 easy steps are :
- Take out the items from the package and arrange them on a table.
- Start with the stems – choose to cut them into smaller pieces or keep them whole for an even wilder effect.
- For the thinnest stems (eucalyptus, gypsophila), slip them at an angle into the natural fir crown (wreath). For the larger ones (cotton flowers), hang them with staples.
- It’s time for other accessories: slide the ones with a wooden support at an angle directly into the fir crown. Use adhesive pads for others.
100% fun and the result is wow !
