Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, Inc., 2004 - Crafts & Hobbies - 112 pages
Wreaths for the holidays, wreaths for the corner, wreaths that accent a mirror: whatever wreath you want to make, just ask “how?” and here’s the answer. Open the covers, and inside this very basic primer you’ll find a cornucopia of exquisite ideas that anyone can master, from simple wreaths that use a pre-made straw form to ones that incorporate interesting found objects. A general section on the fundamentals will get you started; then start crafting some basic designs, including wreaths made with pussy willows or snake grass, a Vertical Wall Festoon, and a Japanese River Cane or Oriental Bamboo Wreath. Hang the Spring Wreath outside, or go Western with a wreath fashioned out of rope. A gallery showcases beautiful examples of the craft.
