Anzac Day Wreath

In Australia it is Anzac Day on April 25th, a day to commemorate those who lost their lives during Word War II on the battlefields. Usually people get up at 4am to attend an open service honouring the Anzacs. This year that won't be possible, but people are making and hanging wreaths of poppies on their fences and front doors, and decorating candles with poppies and agreeing to go to the end of their driveways at 5.55am to stand in silence and respect for 10minutes, to honour those lost lives and the freedoms we were given by them.

I decided to make a paper poppy wreath for our front door using the Poppy Moments dies. Being paper, it cannot be hung out in the weather, but it makes a statement.

There are free instructions for how to make a wreath like this on

I'll be stamping poppies on vellum to wrap around a candle jar too so we can hold lighted candles in our driveways.

What are you making for Anzac Day?
