While this holiday weekend is looking different for everyone this year, I’m still doing some decorating with natural elements in our yard to make it feel special.
Instead of flowers, I am using branches from our two different maple trees in a vase. I also tried a method for making a wreath that my friend Risti here in Kelowna makes. She uses dogwood branches to make beautiful free form wreathes. This was an attempt in her style, embellished with some maple tree branch ‘blossoms’. The dogwood branches are flexible enough to twist into place and secure with a bit of wire where needed.
Here are the maple branches in a vase.
For Easter egg decorating this year we kept it simple – rubbing a frozen blueberry on the hard boiled egg for some colour. The photo doesn’t show the colour that well but this worked. We did a bit of a resist with an elastic band on one.
