12th December: DIY Christmas Wreath

DSC04403It’s been awhile since i’ve done any DIY things on the blog, so I thought I would show you how easy and lovely it is to make a Christmas wreath for your front door. Or maybe you might like to make one and take it home for Christmas as a gift for your family. I bought my oasis ring on ebay it cost about £7, but they come in various different sizes. The rest of it is basically free because I cut all the greenery and berries from my garden!

Start by cutting about 5 different plants from the garden, try and pick some pinecones and colourful berries too!

I bought those sparkly mistletoe bits from Wilkinson’s for £3 – I thought it would be nice to add a touch of sparkle!

Start with the greenery that you’ve got the most of – that will be your base!

Once you’ve completed the entire ring with your base, start to add something else with a bit of a different colour.

Then start to add some colour!

Then any extras you might want – pinecones, sparkly mistletoe, cinnamon sticks, candy canes, oranges – anything you like! Also don’t forget to add a little ribbon around the ring so you can put it up on your door

Then use the rest of what you’ve got to fill in any of the gaps you can see…

Very easy, not expensive and a damn sight cheaper than what you would buy in a florist, or a supermarket! Happy wreath making and merry christmas!
