Christmas Wreaths Sussex
01 December 2017
Christmas is approaching like light speed! It won’t be long now until we are snuggled up by a cosy fire after a delicious meal, sipping wine and watching a cheesy Christmas movie. December is here and most people are beginning to decorate their homes ready for the big day. Are you thinking of adding some festive cheer to your home? Loving the natural, traditional vibe? Wreaths are a must have festive decoration! Whether it be a cosy Welcome Home wreath on the front door or a jazzy table centre piece they bring that extra festive aura to your home.
Want to get creative this year and make your own wreath?
Making a simple Christmas wreath does take time but it's great fun, not too complicated, and can look highly effective!
You will need:
- A wire frame
- Some moss
- Evergreen foliage
- Florist wire
- Dried seasonal fruits and cones
- Good, sharp scissors
Skip this step if you have already purchased a ready-made wire frame! If you don’t already have a wire frame you will need to create a strong sturdy ring base. Don’t forget to add a hook so that you can hang up your masterpiece once it’s finished!
Getting into foliage! Cover the ring in moss and secure with florist wire. Once you have done this you can start adding the evergreen foliage of your choice. (We have used spruce, holy and ivy!)
Let's get funky! This is the fun part and definitely our favourite. You can now add your chosen decorations. If you are undecided on where everything should go, place them all on the wreath first, before committing to wiring them down. Make sure all the wires are tucked in nicely to avoid leaving not-so-pretty patterns on your door, then add a beautiful bow to finish it off.
