HELLO CHRISTMAS!

Create a one-of-a-kind wreath to hang on your front door to welcome visitors!

It’s a lovely crafty activity to do as a family round the dining table during the Christmas countdown. Choose from a subtle style statement to glittering glamour! Why not also get the kids involved and get them to make their own wreaths for their bedroom doors!

YOU WILL NEED:
An artificial wreath

Real foliage

Decorations such as pinecones

Floristry wire

HOW TO MAKE:

1. Take a plain wreath, which will give you a blank canvas to work with we have used the Imperial wreath. It’s available in-store and online at Dobbies.

2. Gather some foliage. We’ve used sprigs of Eucalyptus and Bay. Add the real foliage into the wreath taking care to distribute the sprigs evenly around the wreath.

3. To make your wreath stand out customise it by adding decs of your choice. We’ve chosen a pinecone theme using gold glitter, pinecones and the shatterproof green pinecones.

4. To finish, we added two large pinecones in the centre of the wreath but you can add more spectacular effect, add ribbons, stars, or lighting.
