Mum wanted an autumn wreath after seeing them in Canada last fall. She has been hinting at me for a while but last Thursday I decided to pluck up the courage and have a go. I opted for 'au natural' rather than buying plastic leaves etc (to go outside I couldn't use paper ones- my original idea). This first wreath was made using two coat hangers as the base, apple wood twigs and string. The decoration was from the garden. Although there were quite a few plants with red berries in the garden, those with nice coloured leaves (which didn't fall off the moment I touched them) were a bit lacking.
On Friday I wanted to make a more 'leafy' wreath and so went for a walk up the road with a plastic bag! The base of this wreath is just twigs and string (no coat hangers!!!).
