When I got home this afternoon there was a box waiting for me, inside were two beautiful baskets from the French Basketeer. Right away the little one wanted the small basket for her own and started filling it with flowers.
I noticed the leaves were already changing on the Dogwood tree so I called her over to see. We gathered up a bunch and brought them in.
I wanted to use them somewhere so I decided to make a garland for the mantel. It took me less than ten minutes to put together.
I poked a tiny hole at the end of one leaf; I used the tip of a sharp knife.
Before I pushed the stem of another leaf through I used a dot of hot glue.
It's not necessary to attach them by the stem, that's just how I started so I went with it.
