Happy January, Crafters! Hope you’re all surviving the chilly start to the year so far…
In December I had the pleasure of creating an upcycled festive wreath with the lovely ladies at Yolklore magazine. The wreath was designed for Christmas, however, as I didn’t use traditionally ‘festive’ colours, it’s something that could be used all year round to brighten up your walls! I thought I’d share the process here with you as the step-by-step guide that Yolklore published - you could get a head start on next year’s festive decs by up-cycling your Christmas cards or wrapping paper, or create something that is all-season friendly, it’s up to you!
I’m thinking of doing a monthly ‘Make’, giving you ideas on how to use your left over/salvaged paper, magazines, junk mail, old envelopes, old cards, leftovers from other crafty projects etc to make something pretty, useful, or just to flex your creative muscles! I find crafting is a great way to relax and de-stress as your attention becomes so focused on the project in hand that you can’t really think about anything else, and it’s a lovely activity to do by yourself or with friends.
If you have any suggestions, or things you’d like to see me try out here let me know!
Below are a few shots from the article, all instructions can be found over on the site right here! I hope you enjoy it, and I’d love to see any creations - feel free to tag me @paper_hawk on instagram and twitter, and @paperhawk on facebook .
