Holly Leaves & Xmas Doves
by petal & pins
Back in winter, when the berries were red, I created my garden fairy several holly gowns with Christmas in mind and chose this one for a special festive edition card.
Early in December I took my Garden Fairy’s Wardrobe collection to the market. Although my Petal & Pins stall was quite petite I wanted something else to have alongside my card sets and decided to make origami doves that I strung on fine gold thread.
The cards and the doves proved so popular that I never got to send any of the holly dress cards myself and needed to make more doves to use for my own festive decorating.
We have had house guests over christmas including ball obsessed Oscar the Groodle so the safest place for my glass baubles was in a vase rather than dangling tantalisingly from the tree.
With the addition of a branch and some of my origami doves it made a striking centrepiece on the dining table on christmas day and now graces the cocktail cabinet ready for New Years Eve festivities.
