Every year I forage in the garden and send the doh and kids on a little adventure to bring Mamma some lovely green and Christmassy bits for a wreath. This year there was no shortage of wonderful holly with an abundance of red berries.
So to get started I used some fresh moss that I got from our local garden centre, lay it on top of the metal ring, if you don't have a ring you can just make one out of metal wire.
I used metal sticks to keep the moss in place, you can also use garden wire or string.
Once it is all secure, you can start to add your chosen foliage. I am fortunate that we have quite a few Leylandii trees in our garden, so I usually snip a few of their branches for the base
and then start adding some holly and whatever else you can get your mitts on.
Tie it all together using either garden wire or string and
voila you have one Christmas wreath.
For anyone in warmer climates, some roses or hydrangeas also make a beautiful Christmas wreath.
Here are two sweet pictures I picked up at the Church fair for 50p each.
We managed to grab some time to indulge in the brilliant Elf, our first Christmas flick of the year, whilst enjoying some warm mince pies. It sure feels like the festive season is in full swing and I am already planning the next flick, oh too many wonderful choices... What is your favourite Christmas movie(s)??
I do hope that you all had a wonderful weekend. I will be back shortly with a recipe for lavender salt scrub.
