Day 1 of FLOWERS GALORE!
Spools and Tools
This is a wreath that started with a base of old wooden thread spools, threaded onto a thick floral wire. The base is wrapped with a printed ribbon, and adorned with tin butterflies, vintage buttons and an old pair of scissors that belonged to my grandmother. The scissors are wrapped with a ribbon that has a print similar to a measuring tape. There are also flowers made from the printed ribbon and a few lady bugs are resting in place.
The base also has four plastic thimbles that are filled with red blue and yellow flowers.
This is an example from my book Ribbonwork Flowers by C&T Publishing.
Happy Stitching, enjoy~ Christen!
