WRAPPED IN TEX­TURE

Country Sampler Autumn Decorating SIP 2018 - - Inside -

Bring the beau­ti­fully rus­tic tex­ture of birch bark to your front door as a con­tainer for a spray of muted fall flo­rals. Roll a large sheet of birch bark into a cone, and use painter’s tape to se­cure the shape. Along the over­lapped edge, mark place­ment for holes to cre­ate a se­ries of wire Xs to join the lay­ers. At the tips of each X, drill small holes through both lay­ers. Thread an­nealed wire through the holes di­ag­o­nally to make each X. Re­peat to dou­ble up the wires and then twist the ends to­gether on the in­side and clip the ex­cess. Fin­ish by wiring a loop of bark to the in­side back edge for hang­ing. Choose an as­sort­ment of fall leaves, eu­ca­lyp­tus, berries, pinecones and pods to fill the cone, and then hang on your door.
