These little wreaths (Approx 9″ diameter) made from natural twigs were decorated simply by recycling old bits and bobs out of my eclectic array of what some might call ‘junk’. I have many tubs of old buttons, bits of jewellery – most of which are broken or incomplete pieces and miles of ribbons – which are all in little bits too!
Firstly I wrapped around several different, coordinating, varying width ribbons. I then spent a few happy hours routing in my tins until I had found just the old buttons and bits to match up with the ribbon decorated wreaths. Next I attached all the decorative bits using florists wire. As a finishing touch I twisted a long length of embroidery silk to make a twisted hanging loop!
