Funds are tight for many of us this Christmas, but that doesn't mean that seasonal cheer has to be lacking. I made a wreath for our front door that cost me nothing, but which I had a lot of enjoyment making.
I created the wreath base from fallen silver birch twigs - Our garden has been littered with them since the recent high winds we had. I simply twisted and wound them around each other to create the circle.
I then harvested a few lengths of ivy (It grows like a weed everywhere along our garden's boundary) I also collected a few ivy berries and holly berries for colour.
These were all just pushed in to the twig base. I wanted it to have a simple country look, not too ostentatious, as I don't feel that would be appropriate for this year.
A wired ribbon that I'd saved from a gift was tied in a bow to complete the decoration.
Lots more to show you, but Blogger has messed up my post formatting, so I need to know this is going to upload, before I add more festive posts. (Is anyone else having problems with the old system on Google Chrome?)
Have a great week,
