New colourful wall hanging.

Finished it at last. I started wrapping the big rings when I was on holiday in September, it's taken a while, ha ha. A slow process, choosing and mixing the colours, which fabric to use, how many circles to stitch onto the tree, how to finish the base of the tree, what fabric to back it with. It measures 16.5 inches across, and 23 inches top to bottom.








Placed side by side with an earlier one I made using the same tree template. I have extended the trunk for the new one. I think it looks better.


Placed side by side with this hanging which also has wrapped rings on it. These are thicker and bulkier so they don't sit flat on the background like the new one.


Three similar style hangings all together.




Testing I am in the frame before recording the video. I have a different top on, changed my mind.


This is not a 'how to make it', video, it would take far too long to film. I previously made one on how to wrap the rings. It's up to you what you do with the rings, if you are going to try it.



Phew, that's finished, now what to do next. Watch this space.  ilona

  5. I do like the second tree's longer trunk and the change at the bottom to leaves(?). All in all... worth all the time and effort! Hurrah for you!!

  8. That really is eye catching. I bet a packet of cheap kids bangles would make excellent bases for a similar project

    Each of the wall hangings is beautiful, but I like the new one best. One can see that you have had a lot of practice and experience. These works of art surely brighten up a room, especially in this gloomy time of the year.

  21. Absolutely fabulous Ilona !!!! I LOVE the "Trees n' Rings" series. Keep it up and you'll soon have a forest, or at least a little Woodland. Maybe some seasonal colours next time?
    Much patience and creativity needed. A pukka pro!! Hat off to you.
