Christmas wreath making

Hello Everyone,

The other night I went to a Christmas wreath making workshop at our local pub.  It was supposed to happen last year, but was cancelled due to heavy snow.

We have a variegated holly bush in the garden which this year is covered with berries.  I also gathered holly and yew from the garden.  The wreath bases were supplied as part of the worshop – these were round bases filled with oasis.

The first step was to put the evergreen material around the outer and inner edges.  For my wreath, I used golden yew.  The next row in was holly, which was infilled with extra berries to give colour.  Finally I added the ivy.

The finished Christmas wreath

I’m really pleased with how my wreath turned out – I failed art at school (the first person in my school to fail art in 20 years, so my teacher told me), so I sometimes have a bit of a confidence crisis with crafty things.  More importantly, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. – everyone’s wreath was different and they are now hanging on front doors around the village. 

What Christmas crafts have you been getting on with?

Until next time, Tawney.

  1. The wreath looks fabulous Tawney. Did it last all through December?

    I made my own wreath too and was very impressed with it. I will be wandering Frugal Hill again next year gathering all I need to make another. I will never buy another Christmas wreath again.
