Natural wreath

2 Dec
Times are tight and I didn’t have the money to fork out for a wreath.  Minimum price is about 20 euro and some aren’t that nice anyway.
So with a wire coat hanger, green garden wire (the only thing I had to buy) and some greenery, berries and pine cones from the hedgerow.   I made my own.

I just keep wrapping the greenery around the hanger and wiring it on until it looked full then add the berries and cones.  I hot glued the three cones together before wiring in on.
I’m happy with it 🙂

    Cute idea. Love it! I wonder if gum tree branches would weave so well? lol Can't wait to see your 'snow' pictures. 🙂 Nic

    You clever thing. So much nicer than a plastic one. Love the nativity scene also. Ever so cute.
