This cute idea was also from the same lady that inspired me to pick up this hobby. Whilst at Wool @J13 my friend admired this item, and so it was one of the first things I wanted to make as their birthday was also coming up.
After a shopping trip to Abakhan in Hanley, a huge haberdashery, to top up my wool stock – I set about picking the colours to use in this garland. I chose four natural colours and decided to make four of each to create a nice long length.
I purchased the acorn cups online (as it was easier and quicker but I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for them from now on), the jute twine from Wilko and got my hands on a glue gun to attach everything together. The end result can be seen above and below… let’s hope my friend likes the gift!
