I have always loved wreaths for decoration and I never cease to come up with ideas about how to make yet another one, when Christmas, Easter, Spring or Summer are around the corner.
But what is it that attracts me to them? Is it their circular shape which represents, among other things, unity, wholeness and completion, or just the fact that you can use them almost everywhere at home to add this special or festive touch which can easily beautify your space, at a low cost?
The answer remains unknown, but the fact is that I have an endless obsession with wreaths, so today I decided to share with you just few of them ,which are a permanent decorative element of my house.
It is very easy to make. The most laborious part is the making of the little bird at the bottom.
Wreath No 2 : I used the same method as the one I used for the first wreath, but I made some fabric fish instead of birds and also painted some sea urchin shells, which I found on the beach. The painted sea urchin shells look great when you add a coat of acrylic paint on them and they are fantastic for using on a summery wreath. I also added some tiny pieces of drift wood and starfish (real and plaster ones) .Instead of a fabric ribbon , I used some lengths of raffia . They give a country style look to the wreath.
Wreath No 3 : The easiest and fastest to make at no cost at all.
Use any twigs you may get from a garden , make a circular shape , tie them in place using some raffia and add little bows made of fabric in different colours and texture . You can add some colourful buttons and little hearts, which you can hang from the wreath using raffia.
Here you are!! You can have a new wreathe for a wall on the balcony or the front door at no time at all.
Thank you for reading dear readers and I wish you a lovely , creative weekend. The weather in Greece tomorrow will be quite cold and autumnal but I suppose it was about time.
Till next time ,
