Hi again!!! I can’t believe it’s almost the end of November! Thanksgiving is just around the corner and then our favorite holiday: Christmas!!
Since Thanksgiving is not celebrated in England, Christmas preparations have already started here. Many many markets, fairs, etc have been held since the first weekend of November and I’ve been doing a bit of crafting myself. I have this crazy intention to make lots of new decor for the home these next few weeks!
So here’s holiday decor exhibit one: A wool and felt wreath. My blog friend Cathy Pascual is a FABULOUS wreath crafter and I followed her felt flower tutorial to create the flowers. Aren’t they pretty? The making of the wreath isn’t hard but a bit time consuming (or maybe I’m just not good at it — a possibility *WINK*). I am though very pleased with how it turned out and I may create a few more for gifts.
For this one, since it’s my first, I used inexpensive materials. Now that I know better and I want better materials, I shall order some wool felt and also good wool. BUT, this is just me. As you can see, the inexpensive materials came out pretty nice!!
Below are a few close-ups and if you like, you can go on YouTube and there are many tutorials on how to create this. OR, if you don’t want to be bothered, pop over Cathy’s Etsy shop and she’s got many many gorgeous ones for you to choose from!
Until next time!!
