Splash of Colour December: Beaded wreath
It's December already. How on earth did that happen? Splash of Colour week is back - a little late I'll admit, but hopefully it'll be as enjoyable as last month.
For anyone who might be new to my blog I started a winter project last month to seek out, photograph and blog colour around the first week of every month until March. The aim is to banish winter greys (or indeed any blues that might be lurking) by looking at colour. It's a kind of experiment and I really think it began to work last month. Everyone who joined in enjoyed it and several said it boosted mood too! There should be no shortage of colourful subjects this month: baubles, berries, whatever looks festive and cheery.
The Splash of Colour Flickr group is here if you'd like to have a peep. I checked in just now and I can see there's some gorgeous images on there already today.
There's a good deal of red, green and white around at this time of year. I've been using these colours to make these little beaded wreaths for several years and today I was feeling slightly Marie-Antoinette-ish so I've used cranberry and ivory freshwater pearls for the berries.
I'll be posting a little tutorial in a day or two if you'd like to know how I make them.
In the meantime I'm giving one of these wreath decorations away so if you'd like the chance to win one just pop a comment here. I'll draw the winner in a week.
Add your blog here if you're joining in, then link back here and we'll have a blog hop. Enjoy the colour....
