I saw a wreath making class advertised by the "Parks and Cemeteries" with all materials included for £7.50 so I thought we'd give it a go.
It was held in a massive greenhouse and we started off with a talk on green willow and a demonstration by Dorothy who had a put together a few wreaths for us to get ideas from, then it was time to "get making"
We each chose 10 lengths of willow and wove it into a ring, weaving away until we were happy with the shape,
then we added the foliage of which there was plenty to choose from and wired it all together,
adding fir cones, berries and dried orange slices
we finished them off with wired ribbon bows and had a cuppa and a mince pie before taking some pictures.
These two did very well for a first attempt
I've hung one on the bike in the back garden along with some fairy lights and an old railway lantern and the other on the fence,
A nice shade of purple...this is the bruise on my leg after my fall last week.....must be more careful!!
