This ecofriendly garland of paper flowers would look wonderful hanging across a doorway or window or draped along a mantle. It can be hung vertically or horizontally because the flowers are symmetrical. Use it to welcome spring, celebrate a special event with family and friends or simply brighten your home.

Each colourful flower has been die cut from one-of-a-kind ecoprints I created on watercolour paper using flowers and leaves from my garden. Ecoprinting, which is also called botanical contact printing, is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. All the colors you see come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints – and every print is unique.

Each garland is 8 feet (2.5 meters) long and includes at least 18 flowers, which range in size from 3 to 3.25 inches (approx. 8 cm). I’ve sewn them together by running them through my vintage sewing machine. There’s plenty of thread left at each end in case you want to join garlands together. These garlands will last a long time and can be reused if kept dry and out of the sun. Every banner I make is one-of-a-kind so the one you receive will not be exactly the one pictured, but it will be just as colourful.

Handcrafted with care by Peta Bailey in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
