What is hoop art embroidery?
As an art form, hoop art is very new – traditionally, embroidery to be displayed on the wall would have been stretched and framed over a board or canvas, and the hoop was only used during the stitching. Embroidery hoops look fantastic displayed en masse across a wall – I’d love to do that one day.
What does a wreath symbolize at Christmas?
Together, the circular shape and the evergreen material make the wreath a representation of eternal life. It is also a representation of faith, as Christians in Europe often placed a candle on the wreath during Advent to symbolize the light that Jesus brought into the world.
How do you make a Christmas wreath with real branches?
Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form. Use your floral wire to wrap around both the bundle and the form a few times, until it feels secure. Do NOT clip the wire when you are finished.
How do you balance a wreath?
Loop the line down around the wreath hanger. The wreath will hang a bit in front of the garage door rather than against it. In this case, don’t run fishing line or ribbon through the center of the wreath and up to the nail. Without a flush surface to rest against, the wreath will turn and appear out of balance.
