Tussey Mussey

For those of you not familiar with a tussey mussey here is a little bit of info I found on the web. Its origins can be traced back to the castles of medieval times when these flower holders were used to carry fresh bouquets of flowers around the halls and rooms to get rid of that musty castle odor! During the Victorian era, tussey mussey bouquets were the rage for weddings, with delicate, lacey looking silver flower holders being very popular. I plan on creating many of these to give to friends and family during the holiday season. I think they will look so cute filled with dried flowers, candy canes or a small gift. Actually, I’m going to create some for every holiday.

These are so fun and easy to make. I hope you try to make some. I’ve posted more photos of this Tussey Mussey in my photo gallery. Just click the photos to enlarge them. A PDF download with a complete listing of the supplies and tools needed, along with step-by-step instructions, is available in my online store.
