attaching dried lavender heart wreath

I took 9 dried lavender stems of varying length for each side and attached them with black cotton.

The cotton holding the dried lavender flowers in place will be hidden by the raffia bow.

Once the dried lavender flowers had been attached to the heart wreath, I tidied up all the loose ends of thread, raffia and lavender stems.

Finally, I took about a metre of raffia, doubled it up, wrapped it round the point of the heart and made a big bow.
I created a hanging loop by threading a loop of raffia through the knot at the top of the heart, and here is the finished item.
