Samhain Wreath

Materials:


96 natural sticks, 10 to 14 inches long (about 1/4-inch diameter)


Natural twine


2 x 6-inch sheet moss (available with floral supplies)


5-inch black craft bird


1 1/2-inch-wide black satin ribbon, 30 inches long


Hot-glue gun and glue sticks


Floral wire


Scissors


Ruler





1. Lay down 12 sticks with the thinner ends pointing in the same direction. Gather another 12 sticks and lay them underneath the first pile with the ends pointing in the opposite direction. Combine the two piles, then pull some sticks to the right and some to the left, until you have one 20-inch-long bundle.





2. Find the center of the bundle. Wrap the bundle together with the twine in two places 3 inches to the left of the center and 3 inches to the right of the center. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make three more bundles.





3. Crisscross the bundles to create a square wreath shape. The twine bindings should meet at the corners of the square. The inside of the wreath square should measure about 6 inches x 6 inches.





4. Bind the four corners by wrapping the twine diagonally around the crossed bundles, 10 times in each direction, to form a twine X. Knot the twine in the back and trim the ends.





5. To create a perch for the bird, hot-glue the sheet moss to the bottom inside edge of the wreath to form a little mossy ledge.





6. Perch the bird on the moss and attach his feet to a few twigs with the floral wire.





7. To hang, loop the black ribbon around the top of the wreath and tie a knot at the end. Then hang that ravishing wreath on your door.

Lessons Learned

I've learned that once a relationship is over, if you experienced more smiles than tears, then it wasn't a waste of time.
