LOVE, LEAF & WREATH (Part 2)
One of our favourite homeware emporiums in Cape Town - The Meeting Place (Simonstown) - approached us regarding fresh floral decor products for the festive season...and before we could click our heels together, our workshop was abound with a flurry of leaves, fynbos, grosgrain trims and delicate stardust. Happiness is! Karoo-chic wire wreaths was the order of the day, including a 1 meter in diameter giant wreath window installation, complete with raw lasercut wording (Merry) and textural greens set in a larger-than-life hand-carved wooden frame with copper polka-dot hessian trim detailing and subtle glitter dusting.
These hand-made wreaths are created using Pennygum Eucalyptus stems, with layered texture and detailing created using Stoebe , Kol-Kol and clocally sourced Cones fynbos - perfect to allow for natural drying out - taking on a new and different aesthetic quality. Best hung flat against a wall, as a feature, away from the wind and elements.
Each wreath is created uniquely and no two are the same, some incorporating keepsake raw cut wording: Joy, Noel, Star, Love, Hope, Merry. The perfect country-chic Christmas decoration for your home or business. Hand-made with love...
