Here is wreath number two. It also makes use of some vintage buttons, but with a far different effect. I wanted to play with texture so I used my fancy new stitches and some buttons and faux pearls for this one. I decided not to cut out the center, for fear of ruining it. I think it has a sort of angelic and beachy feel all at once. It may be too pretty to sit in the hallway of my apartment house, where the neighbors will get to see it more than me. Maybe I’ll just buy one of those cheap paper cutouts from the drugstore for the front door and leave all the nice handcrafted goodies for inside.
There’s at least one more wreath coming. Stay tuned.
