Wreath making๐ŸŽ„

During the first weekend of December we gathered around newspaper covered tables and we crafted many wreaths.  For ourselves, for friends, for colleagues and for family. 
Food was shared and there was so much - the table groaned beneath plates and despite our best efforts, the left overs were shared out and sent home to be eaten later.
By the end of a wonderful day of cutting, snipping, chatting, eating, tying and tweaking, between the ten of us we had made 15 wreaths.  Our home smelt gloriously of wood and pine - quite heady and spicy.

Then, later, once our guests had gone, the house quiet, left over foliage and fripperies put away we cradled mugs of tea and toasted our toes in front of the fire.
It had been a good day, a very good day, made the more special as we'd not been able to celebrate wreath making for the previous two years and it was wonderful being able share food and friendship once again ❤️❄️๐ŸŽ„

    1. Thank you๐ŸŽ„❤️ I agree, so satisfying to make and I love that 99% can be foraged or recycled and what I really like - is being able to make them (with love) for a few folk

    1. It is so simple and gives such a wonderful end product - I make them all year round, one of my favourite things to craft ❤️

  7. Like GZ says, a lovely activity to share with a like-minded group. Wonderful wreathes and some very pretty nibbles, too! We've just had a fresh delivery of logs but fortunately it's delightfully mild today so the wood burner isn't ablaze! xxx

    1. We love our burner, it gives a different kind of heat, makes the house lovely and cosy. Our weather must be cooler than yours as we have had the burner going for quite a while now ❄️❄️
