Display wreath that hover around a big shiny pumpkin

For this design I wanted my wreath to be light and airy so that it just whips around the solid pumpkin like a breeze.

Weave another circle

Weave another circle, this time slightly smaller and weave it into the wreath shape

Extend some of the vine so that it lifts the wreath from the design table

Weave in thin vines to fill in the basic shape between the gaps, and extend some of the vine so that it lifts the wreath from the design table. Make sure it is quite strong so that it can carry the weight of the flower material and water tubes.

Slip a tiny vine snipped under the pumpkin so that it does not roll around in the display

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
