Casket Toys Part II

More about my casket toys!
There is a very good reason this garden twinkles!
The photo above shows how each flower was made. A short length of metal purl was stretched out over a base wire. This was then wrapped with Gilt Silk Twist. Then that entire combination was wrapped around a large needle, slipped off the needle, looped in half  with the ends twisted together.

I used a variation of that technique to make leaves as well. These were then bound together garland style.

Here are the materials used for the tent.
Not shown is the red leather I used for the inside wall.
