I was really just spud ling (well it came up on my spell checker) with some christmas material and a wooden curtain ring and wondered if I could turn it into a christmas wreath (as you do)!
So I tore a selection of christmas material off cuts into very thin 6" strips and tied them onto the ring until it was filled up. I then trimmed the strips back nearly to the knots to get the right perspective and added the little wooden birdie. A piece of the selvedge from one material and
1/2 hour later one little Mini Christmas Wreath( using vintage style materials) to hang on the tree!

This is sooooooooooooooooo cool! I gotta make me some of these. Bit busy with a choir boy outfit right now, but maybe after that... xxx
That is so cute Mrs A - a lovely thing to keep and use year after year Mich x
Super idea and all made possible with a humble curtain ring. great fabric too.
Really clever make - I love it!! Rips down curtain poles in search of rings - wait, I have some spares if I can find them :)) Di xx
And yet another briliant idea. Def. gonna have a go at that. It looks really effective.
