Remembrance Day Display

We always try to do a display at the Flower Shop and I loved making all of the pieces for Remembrance Day to put this one together.

So I started with Poppies making loads but unsure what they were for.
I thought maybe a wreath. It is also pretty lucky that my husband is a dab had at carpentry so I request a free standing cross and of course he obliged.
I needed rocks for around the base of the cross and mine started life as brown packaging paper which I painted then dry brushed to get the effect.
I had them drying all over my kitchen benches.

Once dry they were scrunched up and dry brushed with white paint which worked beautifully

I painted the wooded cross white and added the Lest We Forget and soldiers with black vinyl cut using my electronic cutter.

As you can see it all came together quite nicely.
I just needed to set the scene.
So here it all is in place in the Flower Shop

I added a camouflage net the wreath, some boots and army trousers.

I used up the extra paper poppies on our work bench.

All in all I’m really please how this has turned out.
