Another Wreath

After making an Easter wreath for myself I then made one for my daughter this time using some knitted flowers. 

I started with a woven pre-formed wreath.

I then knitted some cherry blossom using Susie John's 20 makes Knitted Flowers book.

Then added the beaded stalks to create centres for each of the blossoms. 

I added some silk leaves to the wreath weaving them through the branches of the wreath. Once the leaves were added I then added the blossoms using the beaded wires to attach the flowers to the wreath.

Finally added the bow to complete the wreath.

Easter Wreath

As anyone who ever reads my blog or sees my facebook or instagram posts you will know I'm really into making decorations for various events, Christmas , Easter, Halloween, Valentines, or anything else worth celebrating. Well this year I made various bits for Valentines Day for both my son and daughter, including a heart shaped flower wreath for my daughter as shown in my last post. 

Well this got me thinking about Easter and what I could do for decorations. Well, bunting of course, but what else could I do? After a visit to Ikea I decided upon a wreath. Using one of their flower wreaths, a whole load of addition silk flowers and ribbon I created the following; 

I am rather pleased with the end result and am hoping I can start a trend locally for wreaths on doors not only at Christmas but also at Easter. I'll keep you posted if it catches on. My daughter,however is of the opinion its so pretty it will get pinched, hopefully not.
