And then taped the two pieces together into a circle-ish shape.
Then wrapped some strips of burlap around it...
I sewed a few stitches to secure it to the woggle each time I got to the end of a strip, but I'm sure you could just use pins or a glue gun to avoid the sewing if you wanted. I added a simple bow and some twine at the top for hanging and then we started attaching flowers.
|I quite liked it with just this one flower, but it wasn't enough for Venetia, or Maria who'd joined us in the making by this point.|
You can probably see we used a few crocheted doilies as well - obviously found in Charity Shops! Some of them are coloured - these were again left over from a long ago creation. I'm not even sure what we were trying to make, but I remember it involved going outside on a sunny day with scraps of fabric, lace and doilies and painting them with very watered down acrylics - it was lots of fun!
So now we have our own Spring wreath. Venetia thinks a butterfly one would look lovely too, that could be a project for another rainy day - especially as I have several more woggle pieces!
