I don't know a proper word for one of these in english...
Anyway. My mother dried some oranges christmas before last or so to use them for some christmas decorations, but she never did it, so I took them a few days ago, along with an interesting sort of circular empty frame and the plastic leaves of another candle ornament (my mother was reluctant to let me slaughter it, but she didn't use it herself...)
And now I did this.
It's a bit more than half a yard high I think
I didn't actually break the leaves (maybe two...) so they can basically be detached and put back where they once were. I was thinking I'll give this to my mother for mothers day (last sunday of may).
Smart thing about the frame: It's a rubber circle and a plastic circle - the plastic one having a sort of "bend" inwards so the rubber one will stay put there, and press down and hold whatever you put in the frame (like an embroidery) so it was very good for attaching the fishing wire with oranges on it, and decorating the rubber circle separatly with leaves...
The oranges get very nicely glowlike in the sun, being half seethrough and orange
Let me know what ya think!
