Countryside mini bunting. Floral paper garland cut and made from a preloved and discarded facsimile copy of the gorgeous book, The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady originally written by Edith Holden in 1906.
This floral bunting features some of the plants and creatures that she saw and painted as they appeared in the countryside around her in Warwickshire. A fabulous eco friendly present for a lover of flowers or the countryside in general, and a very pretty garland for a wedding, anniversary party or tea party.
Alternatively it would be a lovely enhancement to a bookshelf, bedroom wall or living room!
- Each flag measures 2 1/2" in diameter (about 6.25cm)
- There are 18 different flags strung on 7 feet (just over 2m) of cream yarn.
- If the flags were placed end to end the garland would measure 45" (112.5 cm) but the flags slide easily up and down the yarn so you can space them out as you like and/or change the order on the yarn.
- The garland hangs down beautifully and if it's not anchored at the bottom, it will move gently in the air, giving it a lovely movement
There are 3 garlands pictured: please note that this listing is for ONE garland.
Your garland will not be the same as the one pictured, but it will have 18 different and gorgeous illustrations from the book.. The paper is of good quality and the garland can be taken down/stored and reused with confidence. However, its not really suitable for use outdoors as it might get damaged if it got wet.
The flowers mini bunting is best viewed from one side. The reverse has some illustrations of flora and fauna and also some text - this in itself is a delight as it is written in Edith Holden's own handwriting.
Nearly all my paper bunting/garlands have been repurposed/upcycled from pre used and discarded books, postcards, maps, card games and other things that have gorgeous illustrations.
As this is a handmade item upcycled from an old book, it may show some signs of age but this just adds to the unique charm.
