My friend Stella came round the other day armed with one of her projects. She always has great ideas as she is very creative. They usually involve sewing which I love but am nowhere as good as she is at doing them. This time, however,no sewing was involved.
She had seen a YouTube video on line by Lealu a fabulous designer, (see her site on http://www.lealu.co.uk/index.html) for some shabby chic garlands . Stella thought it would be a good idea to translate this technique into masking some garlands.
All you need is a wreath base, hessian, scented soap hearts, rose buds, ribbon. lace, sacking, string, and fabric scraps. Plus lots and lots of patience and nibble fingers. The end result I think is worth it though. What do you think?
