Friday, December 19


Today I ticked off something from my to do list- I made a wreath!

Firstly, I foraged a few springs and branches from around my garden.

I formed a base for my wreath out of a thistle branch, twisting it into a circle and wrapping until it kept it's shape. The spikes were a bit vicious but they gave the later laters of foliage something to grip to.

Next I started to layer up sprigs of greenery, twisting them around and repeating until there was a lot of layers and the wreath had some width. Right at the end I twisted on some holly and held it in place with some ivy, which was more flexible and durable. I slotted in some berries and stung up some ribbon and it was done.

Then it was just a case of finding a door!

Until next time,
