Wreath reveal

26 Oct

So here it is, my autumn wreath…

I’m so pleased with how this has turned out, I’m already planning a Christmas version with tiny, red glass beads for holly berries 🙂

For the flowers I used a mixture of patterns from Attic24- the small flowers are these teeny tiny flowers, I changed the size of these flowers using different hooks and, for a couple of the flowers, using two threads together. The large rose in the middle is made using this May Rose pattern (as are the leaves). I think for my next rose I will make more of these larger roses in red, as the wreath will be larger and will need bigger flowers to balance it out.

The majority of the wreath, including the flowers and leaves, is made from left-over Stylecraft Special DK (from last years large ripple blanket). I did buy a couple of new colours, the light green leaves are Meadow and the bright yellow is called Sunshine, appropriately.

    What a beautiful wreath! You have balanced the flowers really well and I think your blue and yellow flowers really lift the pretty Autumnal colours. Abigail x
