After my final festive Crafternoon Cabaret Club I am finally feeling full of Christmas cheer – hooray! Bring on the tinsel. let’s mull everything, more glitter please! I think it was probably all the glorious wrapping paper that filled my weekend – and I have a blog coming out later this week all about creatvie giftwrap to feast your festive eyes upon.
But first – today’s festive make! this was one of the designs I created for my recent Crafternoon Cabaret Club wreath workshop at the Hospital Club. I’ve also uploaded photos from all of my christmas events to facebook today – check them out here.
This is a beautiful simple wreath – both in it’s styling and to make! You can really play with colour with this design and I love how the copper base shines through.
You Will Need
- 1 copper wreath ring
Step 1: Wrap It
Knot the end of your wool to the outer rim of your wreath base. Now wrap your wool around the wreath to create a zigzag pattern the whole way round. Knot to finish.
Step 2: Star Light Star Bright
My wreath base had 5 horizontal sruts holding the two rings together. I used these to shape my star. Number your strust 1 – 5. Start by knotting your wool to the top strut (number 1) and then loop the wool around the struts in this order – 1, 3, 5, 2, 4 and back to 1! Repeat a few times to make the start really stand out.
Step 3: Loop It
Finally cut a short length of wool and knot into a loop at the top of your wreath so you can hang it!
