I rather fancied one of those wonderful Wild at Heart wreaths but at £50-200 it was a bit pricey so instead I set off to make my own. I went to Wimbledon Common and came back with loads of Christmas tree branches, holly, ivy and some other berries.
All you need is a green twine or wire, scissors and a metal ring, or if like me you haven’t got one – a wire hanger will do, just shape it round a plant pot of desirable size.
I started with the Christmas branches, even if your ring is not perfectly round it is easy to disguise it. Mine was rather wonky.
Then I added holly.
Then I added these pretty dark berries.
I finished off with some ivy and few other leftover bits. The only important thing is to make sure everything is tied up well. Now I need to hang it on our front door and that’s it.
