Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Early morning start on our Floral Carpet
The members each made a 300mmx550mm block to create an outer edge for the carpet
Long trailing carpet fringes were made of sections of Amaranthus, Firethorn, evergreen, flax and bark.
Pouring in the Firethorn (Pyracantha) berries
Floral Carpet done, just in time for the show.
For the mid section I used roses, sunflower heads, bark, potting soil and foliage.
