Synopsis

The Complete Book of Garlands, Circles and Decorative Wreaths Creating Beautiful Seasonal Displays from Flowers and Natural Materials by Fiona Barnett, Terence Moore

This title shows how to create beautiful seasonal displays from flowers and natural materials. It also shows how to make beautifully individual floral garlands, circles, wreaths, candle rings and swags. It features over 100 projects, ranging from simple wreaths to flamboyant, dramatic garlands and seasonal swags using a wide variety of flowers and natural materials. It also features contemporary and traditional designs, from a glorious summer rose garland and a fresh springtime circle of pussy willow and fruit blossom to an aromatic blue spruce Christmas swag and a daffodil Easter wreath. It includes essential advice on simple floristry techniques, tools and materials, and how to make the most of nature's abundance with fresh and dried flowers, foliage, nuts, twigs, seedpods, fir cones and shells. In this book, you will find garlands, circles and wreaths for all seasons, providing inspiration for weddings, Valentine's Day, Christmas and more. A wide range of fresh and dried materials is covered with notes on each species. Basic wiring and taping methods are described and illustrated step-by-step. Included is a guide to the wide range of bases available from florists' shops and the book also shows how you can make your own bases from rope, hay and moss. Find out how to make standard circular and heart shapes, then learn how to construct more unusual shapes such as triangles or squares, using sticks or canes bound together at the corners. Whatever the season, this stimulating project book has something to make every occasion special.
