How to make an olive wreath
Today our olive trees had their beauty trim before summer. The twigs came to a good amount and I remembered still having a good sized spare wreath base. Ideal circumstances to make an olive wreath! I love wreaths, they are easy to make from whatever nature gives and make such pretty decorations. Wearing my De Passage à Tokyo Twilly and Mors scarf ring (for a how-to click here).
The ingredients ~ vine clippings and olive twigs.
The wreath base is made by bending the vine clippings, click here for instructions.
Not having to make the base I started off by selecting as straight and long olive twigs as possible..
gathered them into little bunches..
and tied them with a fine metal thread onto the wreath base
work in progress
and ~ voilà! with 35 Birkin for size reference
I thought this one would make a wonderful wall hanging and it looks as if I have found the perfect spot for it!
