Colleen Larson at our Trail Appliances, Calgary South location, shows how making a Remembrance Wreath is as easy as 1-2-3….well okay….up to 4-5-6.
1 Wreath frame
Hot glue gun
Poppy silk flowers
Writing pen for fabric
STEP 1: Use a wire cutter to cut the greenery into smaller pieces
STEP 2: Use the hot glue gun to put a bit of glue on the end of the greenery and place it onto the wreath, creating a half moon shape.
STEP 3: Layer the greenery until full
STEP 4: Cut the silk flowers into smaller pieces and arrange/glue them onto the half moon shape
STEP 5: Create a bow by pinching the ribbon and twisting the pieces into equal lenghts. Add a piece of floral wire to hold the ribbon together.
STEP 6: Attach the ribbon to the top of the wreath, securing it with a piece of floral wire. On another piece of ribbon, big enough to cover the width of the wreath, write a phrase with the fabric pen. Then attach the ribbon to the wreath using a hot glue.
And viola! a lovely wreath to remember by.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below. (John McCrae)
