Why not make a knitted or crochet poppy for Remembrance Day? For those that want to get creative with their poppies this year, we have created a step by step guide on how to create a wreath out of your poppies. You can do this using a glue gun, but if preferred, you could do this as an embroidery method.
It has been heartwarming to see all the beautiful poppies you have made for our partnership with The Royal British Legion for the 2020 Poppy Appeal, using the #DeramoresPoppy. Take a look at the creations on our poppy gallery.
If you create a poppy wreath, we would love to see photos, share with us your wreaths using #DeramoresPoppy.
To make the poppy wreaths you will need the following:
- A wreath twig base
- Loose knitted or crocheted poppies
- A glue gun
1. The first step is knitting or crocheting up your poppies. We have both knitted and crocheted poppy patterns available for just 50p, with 50% of the RRP (excluding VAT), from the sale of the digital pattern going to The Royal British Legion! Download a knitted poppy or alternatively, download a crochet poppy pattern.
2. Arrange the poppy where you would like it to sit on the wreath, ideally positioning the leaf at 11 o'clock and glue into place using the hot glue gun.
3. Next, add your 2nd poppy onto the wreath and glue down.
4. Add your final poppy if desired and glue down, or continue this step if you would like a wreath full of poppies.
5. Take your wire and begin to thread it through the wooden wreath.
6. Loop the wire through the wooden wreath and curve back up.
7. Adjust the wire through the loop until it's at your desired length. Then twizzle the ends together to allow you to pin it to a door.
