Second time this evening ... it's great to be finding time to craft.
I've had the makings of this garland sitting on my desk for weeks ... months, actually!
I wrapped the base, a polystyrene ring bought from my favourite garden/craft centre, with red organza ribbon. The silk Christmas roses, bought in bunches, were in the reduced section so a bargain. A few clips with wire snips and I had enough leaf sprays and flowers to cover the ring. I've just pushed them in so hope they stay put - so far, so good. The gold baubles have just been folded - they come as a bauble on each end of a length of wire - and again just pushed into the base.
The ribbon was already in my stash - just waiting to be put to good use. I bought the gold/red patterned ribbon whilst on holiday in June on a visit to Shopkeeper Gal's shop with the girls from WOYWW. I couldn't resist the ribbon even though I had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it back then :))
The whole thing cost less than £5 - a bargain, I think, and so pretty.
Materials: polystyrene ring base; bunch of large red silk Christmas roses; bunch of smaller white Christmas roses; red organza ribbon; gold satin-edged organza ribbon; red/gold patterned ribbon; gold baubles
Well, I think I could get another half hour crafting before bedtime - I hope to get a bit of scrapping done now :)
Take care all and have a great Saturday.
