Overview
-

Even a quick walk in the countryside or Sunday stroll along the beach can yield the most interesting and attractive materials for making beautiful decorations for the home. In this book, Becci will show you how to form simple wreaths out of foraged elements, with an emphasis on recycling and using sustainable materials. Basic techniques for a variety of seasonal projects are demonstrated, and these can then be used to create smaller garlands, such as napkin rings and candle table centers.

Becci focuses on commonly found elements, foraging for plants and foliage and sourcing inspiration from nature; you don’t need to be a trained florist to design gorgeous wreaths and garlands for yourself or your friends.

The featured projects will cover wreaths for all seasons, from scented lavender hearts to harvest festival straw circles, and we will explore how to make them from more unusual materials such as pool noodles. The emphasis will be on recycling too, so you will be able to create a garland that can be changed throughout the year to suit your decor and mood.
