Looking for a bit of seasonal foliage to greet you at your front door? In this class, Cobrina of Creativebug shows you how using fresh, dried, or faux leaves and flowers can create a simple bough for your door or anywhere in your home. She demonstrates two of her favorite ways to hang these lovely sprigs - a simple upside-down bouquet hung by a ribbon, as well as one that uses branches to make a triangle shape, creating a more modern feel. Whether you collect foliage from the outdoors or want to use a beautifully fading bouquet, these botanical boughs are easy to update and refresh throughout the seasons.
Learn how to:
- Create a layered bouquet
- Tie the Common Whipping knot with ribbon
- Affix a bouquet to a triangle frame
Here’s what you’ll need:
