I loved making and beading these felt vessels and made several for the Wandsworth Artists' Open House last month.
Feedback was that people liked them, but wanted to find a use for them rather than just having them to look at and hold!
I thought they might be a good way to display dried flowers so I gathered some seed heads from the garden and spent a little while spraying them with gold and silver paint, so that they would look more Christmassy.
(May have sprayed part of the kitchen floor a bit silver too, must scrub it tomorrow.) So I hope that if I show them like this at the craft fairs coming up it will give people at least one idea of what to do with them!
