I CANNOT believe it’s Christmas next week!! December is absolutely flying by, it’s so ridiculous.
The week leading up to Christmas day is possibly my favourite week of the year. I actually really like preparing everything, including wrapping which I know a lot of people dislike. This year I seem to have made my Christmas prepping list a lot longer, I honestly think I could set up my own craft stall, looking at the things I’ve made this week.
By the way, I hope you’re all enjoying my little sprinkle of festivity here on my blog… it’s snowing!!! And I couldn’t resist the Bauble garland, LOVE IT!
One thing that I’ve always wanted to try my hand at is making a wreath, so I decided that this year I would make an effort and do it.
I’m so pleased with how it’s turned out, and it was actually really easy to make, plus it hardly cost anything. I bought a metal wreath ring from Ebay for like £2, some craft wire for £1, the Christmas tree foliage I got for free when we bought our tree, we got our tree from a farm and they had a huuuuge pile of off-cuttings and kindly said I could take as much as I wanted, I bought some moss and eucalyptus from a garden centre, the little wooden stars were £1 from Ebay, the pine cones were 20p each, and my boss kindly gave me the dried oranges. Basically, I am DEFINITELY going to always make my own wreath from now on, because to buy one like this it would probably cost about £25.
I watched a tutorial on wreath making before I started, and then after about 1 minute into making it I just started doing my own thing, plonking bits of foliage wherever I could, but I think it kind of worked.
I hope this post has made you feel a little more Christmassy… I didn’t actually plan for my wreath to feature in a post but I decided I wanted to share it.
I’m going to be making a few more things in the next week which I may or may not include in a blog post, I don’t know yet… I know I’ve got a very busy week ahead, so I’ll have to see if I have time. If not I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! XX
