Wreath making marks the beginning of the festivities for us here, it has become a little bit of a tradition now after six years of decorating our front door at the beginning of December, I love making things for our home especially at this time of year. I think the wreath we have made this time may be my favourite, not least because it looks and smells beautiful but because my boy helped me make.
I was delighted when Sarah from Pod & Pip got in touch a while back to ask if I would like to try one of their winter wreath-making kits, which comes compleat with all you need to create your own wreath, including a copper hoop, floristry wire, moss and plenty of fresh seasonal greenery and berries. It really is a treat to receive such a beautiful package through the post and set aside some time to get creative. This would make such a wonderful gift for a friend too.
I love how this wreath has turned out, not least because Arthur and I made some happy memories together but because it has turned out really beautiful, much prettier than any of the wreaths I have made in the past. There was plenty of fresh fir and eucalyptus in the box to really fill it out and I love the deep blue berries as something a little different.
Do you like to make a wreath for your door over the festive season? My top tip for keeping your wreath looking fresh all season is to lay it on the lawn overnight every now and again to keep the moss damp.
