Curly Willow Heart

A project for my booth at the Farmers Market which is opening up the first weekend of May, just in time for a fine Mothers Day!

Nature provided lovely curly willow!  These have been coaxed into a heart shape that measures about 24".

Embellished with about 1/3 - 1/2 yard of pretty cotton fabric strips hand torn and wired for a vintage look they become a pretty floral that waits to brighten moms day. 

Each has been embellished with something fun and while it takes strong hands to wire and some time to create, I simply know when each one is done when I smile at it!

Each fabric flower is wired so can be swapped out depending on the season or message.  The yellow one is HAPPY with a little daisy touch; the Country Blue has a pink strippy rose flower.  Both have hanging wire for easy installation.
