Nature inspired decorations

My name is Giedra Bartas. Mellsva project engages the three biggest passions of my life - gardening, design and photography.

I do belong to visual creative arts and the path of my life has always been guided by what i see and observe. The endless patterns of colours and shapes from Mother Nature give me a great joy of constant discovery. My pictures and my designs show the way i see this world and i am grateful for this opportunity to to make an impact.

Nature amazes me more and more with years and i love being active under the sun. I do enjoy living life to the fullest and in the present moment, dipping in the real tastes and following real values. If i am not working at my home office or traveling, then i most likely went gardening, crafting or doing something fun outdoors.

I love woods and their charming life cycle is a great inspiration to me. You just have to keep your eyes open, be quiet and patient and all the forests secrets will unroll naturally to your feet... If not woods, then the gardens - I am a garden writer, photographer and plant collector, contributing to garden magazines and creating planting plans for small urban and suburb gardens (mostly makeovers).

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Wrinkled and crushed felt leaves and flowers can be easy restored with steam ironing. Just hang your piece and hand steam it a few times. Leave it to dry or fix the wrinkled leaves with your fingers. Regarding felt mobiles and garlands, the longer they hang, the better they look - wool blend tend to reshaped by itself in time. However steam ironing makes it instant.
If you do not own a steam iron, you may get the same effect with a fine mist sprayer. Spray the felt with soft filtered water, fix the wrinkles and felt it dry.

My felt mobiles and most of the garlands are made with paper wrapped wire. That means you can twist and bend the branches whatever direction you want without ruining the piece.

Gift wrapping and packaging

My goods are NOT gift wrapped unless it is stated in the listing.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom or personalized orders are available upon a request.

Sizing details

All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical.
Colors you see on your monitor are not always the same as the real item. It depends on your monitor, so I cannot give you a guarantee that your monitor display the colors in the right way.
Please ask about sizing, color and for more pictures if you are uncertain about an item before purchase.

Making process

Felt wreaths, baby mobiles, flowers and garlands are made from the finest wool blend felt, it varies from thin to thick upon a listing. Every leaf is hand cut with the scissors.

Felt wool balls are handmade using wet technique. They are quite stiff, tightly stuffed with wool and almost do not change their shape then squeezed.
