Feeling all Christmassy today... We cut a pine tree branch and stuck it in a bucket of wet sand in the lounge and decorated it this morning. The kids used their Christmas rubber stamps to make cards and gift tags, and I went out into the garden and collected some bits and pieces to make this wreath for the front door...
It was surprisingly simple and quick to make. I had a wreath made of sticks that I found in a charity shop last year...all I've done is poke the ends of little sprigs of foliage into it. You need to make sure your sprigs are pointing in the same direction (clock-wise or anti-clockwise) and use a variety of leaves and flowers. I used camellia leaves, rosemary, lavender, fern and the flower of a weed that grows by the side of the road...not sure what it's called. Anyway...I think it looks lovely...
