William Morris Strawberry Thief wooden heart hanging decoration

William Morris Strawberry Thief wooden heart hanging decoration
£7.50 1 Available

Description

Perfect nature lovers and Morris fans alike, here is a fabric and wooden heart hanging decoration featuring one of his most iconic designs - Strawberry Thief.

I've used a thicker cotton canvas featuring one of these naughty Thrushes, stealing a strawberry, and attached this section of the fabric to a plywood (FSC approved) wooden heart shape, measuring 6cm wide and approximately 4mm thick). I then added two layers of a special sealer that turns fabric into an oil cloth finish.

On the back I have painted with a metallic royal blue pigment that sparkles as it's full of gorgeous mica!! I've then added a layer of varnish to protect the back and sides too.

The heart shape has a hole on each curve of the heart and I've threaded a matching pale blue cord through both holes. It is adjustable as you can hang it by both halves of a cord - this has a 7.5cm drop or you can hang it from one side of the loop which has a drop of 15cm. Of course, you can also make another knot to your desired length!

This is an ideal letter box gift for a friend or loved one and can be displayed on an ornament hanger, on the wall or window or even the car - anywhere you would like to show your love of Morris's designs!

It will come to you packaged safe in a natural calico drawstring pouch!

Inspiration

Released originally in 1883, William Morris based the pattern and name on the thrushes which frequently stole the strawberries in the kitchen garden of his countryside home, Kelmscott Manor, in Gloucestershire. Despite the fact that this design was one of the most expensive printed furnishings available from Morris & Co., (due to the particular printing method employed) it became a firm favourite with clients.

I bought this thicker fabric by mistake, but then thought it would make great ornaments!
