Advent Calendar 21st December 2012


Advent meaning 'the coming', countdown with our online Advent Calendar to the festive days ahead - the winter solstice / Yule /Christmas

Christmas Wreath


Christmas wreath

You need: a wicker base, ivy, holly(with berries), fir, pine-cones, ribbon, wire, glue

Start by wrapping lengths of ivy around the front of the base, securing with wire ties and sticking stems into the base as you go.
(Don't worry about the back of the wreath 'cos it will be against
the door)

So it's a bit late to be making a Christmas wreath! But making it now ensures it stays fresh during the holidays.

Now slip pieces of fir into the base, behind the ivy right around the circlet.

Next add the sprigs of holly evenly around the wreath.

In Victorian times wreaths hung on the front door were known as ' Welcome rings'.

Using a glue gun carefully stick the pine-cones to the arrangement. Finish by tying a big ribbon bow at the bottom and add a loop at the top of the wreath to hang it up with.
Happy Yuletide!

To make your Christmas wreath even more festive you can add baubles. Hang your creation proudly on your front door and be filled with festive feelings every time you go thro' your door! Happy Christmas!
