Textile artist Jennifer June, whose former Seattle store, Hermitage, stocked under-the-radar wallpaper, adds punch to her wreath by crafting a mini mountainscape. Green—the dominant color of the Northwest— is the base for silkscreened balsa-wood trees and snowcapped mountains. Jennifer also cut forsythia blooms from felt, providing a cheerful pop of color—something to appreciate during the long days of winter. jejejune.com
Materials: Douglas fir, cedar, and forsythia branches, felt, balsawood sheets and dowels, silk-screening materials, hot glue, wire, wire frame.
Tip: Instead of a balanced, uniform wreath, create a scene in one section.
