Little Wreath

Two Dalahäster encouraged Amelia to make some Christmas Wreaths…

Soaking

…so she set some birch twigs and cedar strips to soak in hot water…

…and twined the damp twigs round and clamped them in place with wee clothespins.

She helped make five little rings.  The clothespins stayed in place till the rings were dry…

…then we added some greenery to the circles, using tweezers to wedge the stems between the twisted twigs.

The orange Dalahäst helped Amelia install the finished wreath…

This ring is made with the birch twigs, it has heather twigs and bits of an alpine evergreen from one of our flowerpots.  We added a couple of felt hearts, and mushrooms, and some fennel seed heads…we like it!! Maybe I will be inspired to make a big one for the human’s front door!

  1. Me thinks when you carved Amelia, your creativity was infused into her. Lucky Amelia. That wreath is awesome. Seriously, awesome.

    • They are only half-hearts really – making properly folded heart baskets out of felt would have been too bulky! We are so pleased you like the results – we felt very happy too with the way they turned out.
