Happy Wreath Making!

Today, a small group of friends got together to make a festive Christmas wreath with shrubbery gathered from gardens and hedgerows.

Some of us made a wreath last year under the expert guidance of Kay Gay and were keen to have a go again to see whether we had embedded the knowledge previously gained.

There were a lot of queries and suggestions – the most helpful being from Corinne to advise us to wire the hook into the wreath before we engrossed ourselves in adoring the oasis with shrubbery!

What a wise owl Corinne is!

It wasn’t long before everyone got into their stride to create some beautiful individually crafted wreaths.

And there was even time for the phantom silver birch snipper to gather a little more shrubbery for a home project.

A lovely morning of creativity. Thanks to the two wonderful domestic goddesses who cleaned up the floor after us!

And many thanks to those who put tables away and cleared surplus shrubbery, plus the kitchen fairy who washed and cleared everything away.

Looking forward to next year already!
