Mom’s wreath

1 Jun

After making a huge amount of progress a few weeks ago on my mom’s wreath, I’ve reached a standstill (again). I need to attach stems to the last few leaves, construct about 12 more acorns, and then put it all together. But I started assembling it a week or so ago, and I must say it looks pretty darn cool. That Martha–she’s a genius.

So, so far on this project (the Velvet Leaf Wreath, kit available through Martha By Mail), I’d say the results look great, but be warned: it’s extremely labor-intensive. Embossing the leaves alone took hours. At least I have all summer to put together my own, which will be made from the silk/rayon velvet in the kit and a lighter-weight facing.
