Information on St. Lucy here (fixed the link)
It's a bit early, I know. We are working on our crafts as we have time. Lucy read Kirsten's Surprise this summer and it inspired this project.
Here is what we did (keeping in mind I do not write instruction manuals). Lucy and I traced a leaf onto green wool felt using a white crayon. We cut the shapes out together. Then I sandwiched two together and sewed around the edges and up the middle (about halfway) for little leaf veins - this took some time. I then purchased a flat wooden wreath form and some dowels. My husband cut the dowels about four inches long and we painted them white. He then drilled four small holes through the wreath form equally spaced around the circle and exactly the size of the dowels. We glued the dowels in place through the drilled holes. I then hot glued the leaves in place. Next, Lucy and I took some red wool roving and a bowl of hot water with a little detergent added and rolled several red felt "berries". We attached those to the wreath and tied some gingham ribbon around the candles for a finishing touch. Lucy made a few yellow sculpey flames for the candles.
This was a fun project. I'll stick this post in the sidebar somewhere if anyone wants to reference it closer to December.
Now I am off to teach my daughter how to make coffee for me.
