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.
