Hand Crafted Valentine Wreaths February 6, 2013 by Shiva Rose This Valentine flower fairy Kristen Caissie from Moon Canyon Design and talented artist Amy Joe have teamed up to create a homespun, romantic way to make Valentine personal and poetic. The three of us had a sweet time creating these Valentines in the garden. It was quite meditative listening to the wind chimes as we wrote words of love and tied ribbons and flowers. I think most everyone would appreciate receiving handcrafted pieces of love . . . Kristen what made you think of making wreaths for love day? Wreaths are my most favorite pieces to make. They always seem so hand spun and bespoke. Obviously I love flowers and so whenever I want to make something very special I go to wreaths. What flowers did you use for our sweet wreath? This floral wreath is romantic. I used heather, anemone, ranunculus , garden rose, and dusty miller all placed on twisted grape vine. I used a bit of floral tape and kitchen twine to secure the florals. When would one make a wreath? This wreath is perfect for an afternoon tea party with your closest friends. I say the afternoon since the flowers are fresh cuts and not in water...so they will only last a moment. If you wish to craft up a longer lasting floral wreath you can still use heather but maybe try adding some straw flower, wheat, or dried lavender. I hung the one we made on my front door and it is still in tact! I love to see the reminder of Spring to come on my front door! Where can we find you and your flowers? I'll be handcrafting wildly romantic bouquets for your Valentine starting now. You can pre-order at email@example.com or call at 617-304-9949.
