As soon as I saw the willow break, I knew this was going to be a dried flower moon wreath. The base came about accidentally whilst making up last years dried wreaths . By chance a perfect semi-circle appeared and was destined for making into a moon. It’s been sitting on my desk for a year, waiting for it’s time.

Again by chance a friend asked me to make something for a moon ceremony she is holding. The making conditions couldn’t have been more ideal – a moon for a moon. Well, a moon for a bag of much needed dried hydrangeas. For this wreath I reused up bits and pieces from wreaths I’d already made. Adding in this years dried dahlias, orach and hops (you can see more about my dried flowers here) amongst them. I wanted this to feel colourful but also have a sense of earthiness about it to reflect the season. It was hard to part with this one but I know it’s found its right home.

We’re really feeling the seasonal change here. We have started to hibernate this week – it’s half term and everything feels slower. There are bulbs looking at me wanting to be planted but feel the need to pause before a new season of action starts. Gentle making, usually wreaths, is a great way to slow down and fall into step with the season. The repetitive motion of using your hands to create something beautiful using nature is instinctive and so nourishing. I can’t recommend it enough. If you’d like to make your own, there is a secret video at the end of this post or you could come and join me at an upcoming workshop.
