How to make a wreath

Good evening lovely people.  So do you fancy making your own wreath?

Here’s how to do it.  Grab yourself a ring and a roll of wire.  Working around the frame just build it up, start with moss, add spruce, chillis, ivy, and the magical golden pumpkin.  Finish with ribbon and voila!

Do you own thing.  Skip the spruce and try it with willow.  Bullrushes and clematis trails.  Or cornus, holly, and skimmia berries.  Raid the garden. Raid the neighbours garden (don’t get caught or you might be making two to make amends).

Have fun with it.  And if it’s a bit wonky, a bit amateur, who cares.  You know you made it with love.
