I made a Christmas Wreath!

After foraging for cones, berries, decorative twigs and foliage from nearby woodland, I am attempting to make a Christmas wreath for our front door.

Christmas wreath
I foraged and found:
  • holly with berries
  • larch cones 
  • pinecones
  • yew 
The extra materials I used were:
  • Floral natural rattan wreath ring (12 inches)
  • Cinnamon sticks
  • Raffia
  • Florist wire 22 green 
  • Piece of wire - to make a hook 
  • Recycled red ribbon
and you will need secateurs and scissors.

It is my first attempt making a Christmas wreath, so I'm no expert.... but it was a fun and easy thing to make. The sprigs of holly and foliage were tucked into the rattan wreath ring. The cinnamon sticks and cones were secured with florist wire and raffia. 

Let's see what it looks like!! Hmmm........ something isn't quite right..... 

... and now with a few more tweaks and some red ribbon ...........
