wreath-making is breath-taking.



Yep! I came up with the silly title myself. Something has been going on. Today's my parents wedding anniversary and I went to buy some stuff at Goodlands cause I'm planning a meal and a nice dessert tonight.

But before that, during the week-end, I've been making some wreaths to be used as table centerpieces. They're very easy to make, all you need are some dried weeds, tapes, scissors and the leaves of your choice. I've made one with light-colored leaves and my favourite is the Christmas wreath which requires dark-colored leaves and red flowers and ribbons. I've used leaves from our local "christmas tree" to make the christmas wreath.

It's important to secure the dried weeds together by using the large tape, so that they do not mess your whole working place. Then give the "weed tube" a round shape. This will be the base of your wreath. Then stick the leaves to the wreath by respecting a pattern and make sure that your glue or tape is not visible on the wreath.

Then, when the wreath is ready, decorate at will! :D

Wreaths can be used as table centerpieces as well as decorations on the door or on balconies. Candles looks good in the middle of wreaths too. :D

Here's a picture showing the different steps, if ever you're interested.




So long people and my festive aliens.
