The Midas touch

Home (South Africa) - - FRESH IDEAS -

All you need to make this beau­ti­ful leafy wreath is a wheel-shaped card­board cut-out for the base, a se­lec­tion of hardy leaves and sprigs (such as mag­no­lia, le­mon, bay, broad-leaved pep­per, cyprus or pine), some metal­lic craft paint or spray paint and a glue gun. Look around the gar­den for leaves with dif­fer­ent shapes and tex­tures, keep­ing in mind that you want the wreath to dry out, rather than wilt af­ter all your care­ful glue­ing; choose hardy leaves rather than del­i­cate ones.

Spray-paint some sprigs in metal­lic colours and al­low them to dry be­fore us­ing your glue gun to as­sem­ble your art­work. >> In­spired by the blog piece­ofrain­bow.com.
