Two Dalahäster encouraged Amelia to make some Christmas Wreaths…
…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…
…and everyone was pleased with the results!
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!
