Trying something new


I sometimes look for gift ideas on Pinterest and have seen several different wreaths and hearts made using ribbon or material and even saw one using serviettes. I really wanted to have a go and decided to use ribbon bows. I bought a polystyrene heart from Hobbycraft and sorted through my ribbons to find a good variety of purple ribbons to use. It was quite therapeutic to make and I am really pleased with the way it turned out. It looks lovely against my craft room wall so if it doesn't sell I have just the place for it. Of course if it does sell I shall make more. Like most makes it looks so much prettier in real life.

Very pretty Marianne.
If you have any wire coat-hangers you can make wreaths of lots of different sizes & shapes and the wire is really easy to cover with knotted ribbons.
