~*~ Christmas Wreath ~*~



On Wednesday evening I made this Christmas wreath. The class was held in a beautiful old farmhouse in Hexhamshire.
The circular oasis was covered, first of all, with evergeens and then holly and ivy were added. Finally once all the oasis was covered, I added all the lovely dried bits and pieces.
I used rosemary, purple sage, dried poppies, marjoram, honesty, hawthorn berries and teasels.
The wreath was then soaked for 12hrs and should last until after Christmas.

Very seasonal, much nicer to make your own than to buy one. the herbs should give it a lovely smell too. Hope you are feeling better. We missed you yesterday.
