Christine de Beer Floral Lifestyle Design

Bark Wreath

This was my Mud!!! Floral Art Demonstration at the Rondebosch Flower Club.

Where does mud come from? From dancing in the rain

Bark Wreath

I needed the wreath to be as light as possible to make sure it would "dance in the rain" on the flexible metal stand.

My bark wood wreath started its life as the inside fluff of two Continental pillows, sisal, wood glue, and some spectacular bark and moss.

In my tutorial you will find how I made it- only on a much smaller scale.

It took me so long to glue the tiny sections of bark to the shape that it became a standing joke in the design room that I am growing a Doughnut Tree.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

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.
