Floral Wreath to welcome in Christmas

This week is the start of the last run of classes for this year and they will be all about the Festive Wreath.

Yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed a Wreath class with a difference … well a difference to me since paper wasn't included and I wasn't hosting. Hubby had discovered this Wreath Workshop that was taking place in a beautiful village pub, The Plough, in Bolnhurst not far from us and had booked me onto it. 

I spent the day with some lovely ladies (and gent), learning how to make up a traditional floral wreath - clipping, stripping and building a wreath to be proud of from a real mix of firs, yew, herbs and other natural things … we had so much fun.

We could make a centrepiece for a table or quite simply one to hang on our door. I shall be proudly hanging mine one our front door, when we can get the fixings sorted, but for now, it is hanging in the garden, soaking up the beautiful sunshine. 

I still can't believe that I actually made this. We've been wanting a beautiful large wreath like this for our door at Christmas, for the past 4 years … well this Christmas we shall have … and one I've made … lovingly!

If any of the ladies who I shared the day with are reading this, then a big thank you for helping to make the day so enjoyable. I so much enjoyed all of your company and I hope you all have your wreaths hanging and being admired. 

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ….
