Anyway, a group of us met up and Glenys (bless her patience!) showed us step by step to make a "proper" Christmas Wreath.
|Starting with a wire ring|
|wrapping with moss|
|now a nice sturdy ring ready for greenery to be added|
|all the green had to be wired|
|Yew from the churchyard|
The green was almost done but an essential stop for lunch before adding the last of the covering.
|layering all around|
Its now on the door yet. It sits out in the back garden waiting until we get into December. This will hang on the door till 12th Night and then I hang it in the back garden and will probably last well into March, though the birds will make short change of the berries, but that's fine by me.
|sometimes, less is more!|
Tomorrow brings the big Reveal of our November Mini Mania Challenge and the instructions for our December one. This time we will combine December and January so no reveal at the end of December, but I have heard that it may be a bit more of a Challenge ......we shall see!
