If you spotted our moodboard last week, you’ll know we’re taking inspiration from a little bit of wilderness and bringing it into our homes for this craft kit.
Whaaaa? What would it be? - No bugs please!
As if we would! We’re letting nature bring her artistry to your project this month.
So what are we making?
With materials including these…
This is what you’ll make...
We’re taking imprints from your favourite leaves to create a trio of candle holders.
With this one, you can either go foraging, or use leaves from bought flowers - perhaps those that mean something special to you. We’ve used peony, roses and alstroemerias in ours.
We’ll show you step by step how to attach your leaves to the cup, create and pour the casting plaster, set the tealight holders, and - once it’s solidified - deconstruct the cup to remove the leaves.
Everything you need is in the box - and we’ve included the tealight candles, so you can use them as soon as they’re ready!
You’ll just need a measuring cup, scales, mixing bowl, kitchen roll, scissors and something to protect your table (an opened out bin bag works well!)
There’s full photo instructions and a video tutorial available online - and we’re popping a gorgeous little extra in your kit this month too (it’s a surprise!).
We found you get stunning results using real leaves - and there’s something magical about peeling away the leaves to reveal your casting underneath; it’s a little bit addictive!
Orders for this kit have now closed, but you'll find the video tutorial below - or read on to learn more about subscribing & joining us for future kits.
