How to Make

  1. Paint a layer of white paint over a wooden hanging plaque. Leave to dry. Add another coat, leave to dry.
  2. Take a rattan wreath and stick in some dried moss in between the branches around the whole wreath.
  3. Write the words “Lest We Forget” onto the white plaque using a broad tip marker pen.
  4. Draw 4 heart shapes onto a sheet of red felt all similar in size.
  5. Cut out the heart shapes and use super tacky glue to stick the pointed ends of the heart shapes together to create a poppy flower shape. Leave to dry.
  6. Place a blob of super tacky glue in the middle of the poppy and stick down a small black pom pom. Leave to dry.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 to create 6 felt poppies in total.
  8. Place super tacky glue along the back of the left and right side of the white plaque and stick down to the middle of the rattan wreath. Leave to dry.
  9. Stick 3 poppies to the top of the wreath and 3 poppies to the bottom of the wreath using super tacky glue. Leave to dry.
  10. Cut a piece of ribbon of your choice roughly 15cm long and tie a loop through the top of the wreath and secure in a double knot.

Top Tip

Instead of the wooden plaque, you could write “Lest We Forget” on a strip of white card and stick it to the front of the wreath.
