To-yous-Day from me-day

Aaaaaw this is a little bit of "last of the school holidays" fun, if I may add - but.....um,in AUGUST?!! Yes, a pre-christmas project to make for a song....a song, I tell you!!!

Clothes pegs = £1
Chipboard = about 50p
Scraps of Basic Grey Fruitcake = 25p
Ribbon = 50p
Mini peg = about 2p

Free downloadable instructions and 1-25 numbers to punch out with a 1.5 inch punch.

With the numbers adorned

With the numbers tucked in the box

I left my pegs bare. There is something wholesome and organic about wood that I just feel so drawn to. I did consider covering each peg with BG Fruitcake buuuuuuuuuuuuuut in the end, I plummed for nakedness. We like a bit of freedom, here ;)


You can download the print out with full instructions here.
They are in PDF format

Please share me your makes :)

I really like this wreath and would love to make one. Everytime I try the link for the instructions and printables it gives me an error message. Have they been removed?
Thanks,
Monica

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. See the link below for more info.
