Last weeks were really hot here in the Netherlands. Even if there were a few colder days in between the temperature easily reached 30°C. During these days you are not so much able to do so much of stuff. Since we have no air conditioning, I was trying to find some coldest spots just to relax, solve some puzzles or simply do nothing but also created a Summer beach wreath.
My dad in law asked me to restore a wreath which was in his “outside living room” as we call it. I made it for him as a little decoration for the brick walls, and it looked really good. I thought that now is the best time to hang something with the summer theme to fit the hot days. Already recently, I brought some new empty wreaths, found some light orange and light blue organza and sea shells. I immediately knew what to do.
I asked my mom in law also if she could cut some anchor and rudder for me on the laser machine. As long as I collected all material I started to create. I tried to combine a sea with a beach full of sea shells. I pinned the blue organza in the shape of the waves which covered the sandy beach. Then it was very easy to add the last elements.
Last months I enjoyed creating this type of wreaths. I would love to create for sure still another one which will fit in between, but that will come in the future! For now, I’m busy with one of my projects what takes a lot of time, ordering stuff and collecting ideas. Hopefully, soon I will reveal more details! 🙂
