Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
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.

So much goes into one stage design that I thought it would be worthwhile to break up the design elements and explore each in more detail.
My demonstration looked at ways to use mud to enhance floral art.
