Alice in Wonderland

My first "just for children" wreath (in a long list of wreaths...I have four more planned already)...

These "just for children" wreaths each feature a beloved storybook character...this first wreath features an adorable "Alice in Wonderland" doll, 5 inches tall--the perfect size for a doll house--and the doll may be removed and played with, and then when you're cleaning up you simply place it back on the wreath for the perfect bedroom decoration!

Here are some photos of the Alice wreath:

And now for something completely different...

Two completely different and OOAK wreaths have just been added to my etsy shop...

(Talk about an artist with divergent interests, LOL!)

The first wreath was inspired by my travels up the Northern California coastline...the second wreath is the first in my series featuring OOAK handmade art dolls.

Stay tuned for the next in the series--Alice in Wonderland (with a removable handmade doll suitable for children to play with)!

TEN new luscious wreath materials...

Oh, I'm dreaming of new luscious wreath materials...let me know if any of these inspire or interest you...
1. brilliantly hand-dyed wool roving
2. hand spun wool art yarn
3. needle felted figures
4. vintage items--like raggedy anne dolls and coffee tins
5. shells, shells, and more shells
6. fabric (especially silk and velvet) roses of the millinery quality
7. hand made vine bases, spray painted all sorts of interesting colors
8. exotic birds from far off lands (not real, of course :)
9. vintage child's tea set for a delightfully mad teaparty-esque wreath
10. pacific northwest pine boughs and branches...even with the purple berries... MUST finish my book deadline so I may immerse myself in wreath making :)

New wreath series coming...

I'm beginning a new wreath series...handmade cloth art doll wreaths! (The perfect way to display those lovely dolls so that they don't simply collect dust on your shelves.) First in the series is a vampire goth wreath...then I'm thinking a couple of vintage raggedy ann wreaths...and of course, a luscious zaftig wreath...
More to for it!
