Suddenly it's mid October, the woodburner is on and the leaves are changing colours. Do you love this season?
I love the colours, the cosiness and the hot chocolates.
I haven't been posting a blog post with a tutorial for a while, I have been so busy with other projects, however, at the weekend I made this macrame wreaths inspired by the autumn's colours.
The beautiful yarns are by Bobbiny and honestly these are so quick and fun to make.
The colours are just perfect for this season and the yarn is super soft and makes the most gorgeous fringe.
I hope you will enjoy making them, and please post your Autumn's macrame wreath on Instagram and Facebook, don't forget to tag me! I would love to see them and share. You can also use #startacreativejourney
