This is a lovely idea and I think this would make a nice hostess gift because the recipient could then put it out right away as a decoration. You could also make several,of these in a mini scale and create a garland effect by ,inning them up on the fireplace mantle or the hearth, or even as a table centerpiece with several either clustered or in a row. Nice idea and project!
