Autumn crowns


For all those who love autumn colours I’ll show you some tin can crowns in a different colour version. After some experience with several crowns I now start priming all of them  with white colour first. When this coat has dried you may continue painting with mixed colours. For the ferreous look I poured black, copper and gold on a small plate to take up the colours with a sponge like I did for the other crowns. When dabbing the paint it’s spread irregularly and creates the ferreous look.


These little tea light holder crowns are twinkling in a lovely way due to the copper and gold painting. That shade fmatches very well with small flowers and twigs of bushes that are growing in your garden or can be found in your local forest. Add some hop and some physalis to give your crown a more autumnal look.

Have look at last year’s post with the instruction for those roses. IF you’ve made large crowns the rattan balls and felt roses may be a bit bigger. Make a tandem arrangement of a crown decorated with flowers or other decorative parts and a tea light holder. Meanwhile I’ve even tried some Christmas decorations and will show them within the next days.
