On the run up to Christmas my brain starts buzzing with ideas for gifts and decor projects I'd like to make but as always, most never see the light of day!! I have, however, followed through with one for today's project.... I've used the new Woodland Basics dies from Wplus9 to make a wreath decoration for the Christmas tree....
The dies are fabulous as they're able to span from Autumn into Winter and I wanted to try something seasonal using material scraps. I started by cutting a wreath shape in brown felt with a 3¼" and a 1¾" circle die and used blanket stitch to join them together on the inner seam first.
I drew in some faint woodgrain on the wreath with a pen and attached the foliage using hot glue.... I'm quite pleased how it turned out and will definitely make more and use the bird instead of the cone on some :)
If you don't fancy sewing, you can always make your wreath flat and sandwich a piece of card between the layers to help stiffen the circle, this would be a great activity to use with fun foam or felt for Children to make on the run up to Christmas.
