Green willow wreath & star kit no soak

Description

!! GREEN !! willow available now, no soak, weave before the end of Dec. Or soaking bags provided if required for later weaving.

Imagine arriving at your front door to the welcome sight of a wreath decorated with holly and ivy and tastefully lit by little fairy lights. We are generous with the willow so there is actually enough willow to make more than two items. Suitable for beginners.

Willow wreaths are mostly brought out at Christmas time when they add a lovely bit of colour and light at a dark time of year. But like puppies, wreaths are not just for Christmas! They look great just as they are, with a simple string decoration or with fairy lights.

Look forward to Spring and add some daffodils or even some little eggs! Flowers and a bit of greenery are always a good addition and hydrangeas look really lovely in Autumn.

Don't forget the star, hang it on the wall, prop it above the fire, on a bookcase, in the window. Don't just save the star for Christmas either!

Most people love working with willow once they have had a go. You need a little patience as you do have to soak the willow before starting, but good things come to those who wait!

Our willow kits are an ideal way to get a feel for willow and weaving, as they are simple designs aimed at beginners. Once you have tried weaving willow, you will probably develop a new appreciation for the work that goes into making baskets and other products. The willow in our kits is very high quality and can be used to make heirloom items. If kept in dry conditions, it will last a lifetime or more.

Included are some simple decorations, fairy lights and string. You can add greenery, flowers, feathers, sticks, dried fruit etc. at any time during the year and change your theme each time.

We use British willow in all our willow kits, our willow is grown in Somerset. We try our best to have as many British products as possible in our kits. The willow is 5-6 feet long and is sent out dry and unsoaked. Soaking the willow is pretty straight forward, our instructions will guide you as to what to do.
