Making a Tree Wreath *~*

I saw a tree wreath in the Jeanne d' Arc Living magazine so I thought I would make one for my tree

I had made my ring last year, by twisting long whips of ivy ...

I found a remnant of white cotton cloth and tore it into strips.....

( a few flowers picked from the garden)

Tied the strips of cloth onto the ring...

I could have hung some cones on it as suggested by the magazine...

But decided to tie on Hellebore seed heads for a spring look...

There. I love my Hornbeam tree, and I am sure he loves his wreath...
Folklore called the Hornbeam the immortal tree, so I hope he is.

I shall just add a picture of Maisie sitting by the bluebells..

As you can imagine she loved making the wreath with me,  I had to give her a streamer to play with and now she is worn out ...bless

Inside now for a nice cup of tea and to read the rest of my lovely magazine

  10. Wonderful idea Thea and it seems to fit in so well with spring. It also brings to mind the tradition of tying ribbons on trees. I'm not quite sure where that tradition came from or why. I just have a feeling it is Celtic or similar. It is lovely all the same.

    keep well

    Amanda :-)

    1. Hello Amanda
      Yes I do know what you mean they are called "Clouties"
