Christmas Wreath

Don’t forget to dress your door this christmas! I wanted to try something a little different from the evergreen wreath I made last year.  I’m lucky enough to have grape vines in the garden so I wove these to make the base of the wreath. The vines are really quite easy to work with and stay in place without needing any tape or wires.  If you wanted to try something similar but can’t get hold of grape vines, something like willow, honeysuckle, or ivy might work just as well. I was really pleased with the result.IMG_6023My daughter and I then went on a little foliage gathering expedition in our garden and our neighbours garden (with permission of course!).  Using florist wire I attached our gatherings to the base of the wreath and this is what I created.
