I wanted to use some evergreens from my garden to make a wreath for Keith for Christmas.
Here we have ivy, rosemary, snowberries, holly and a variegated leafed plant that pokes through the fence from next door.
I was originally going to make a circle with the ivy and then add bits to it, but I found this lovely heart shaped base in Next. All i did was cut small pieces of ivy and tuck them in.
The finished piece. I went for simplicity in the end, adding a small sprig of mistletoe (bought) in the middle.
I feel really pleased with the finished thing. Keith loved flower arrangements - he was much better at it than me, having his family's artistic flair - and would have loved the home-madeness of this. We also joked every Christmas about me chasing him for a kiss under the mistletoe, so I just had to add some. Don't think you're getting away with it this year my love!! ;-) x x x
