Do it yourself Christmas wreath!

A wreath hanging on the door is one of the most prominent signs that the festive season is upon us. With so many different styles and colours to choose from – from timeless to stylish, feathers and leaves, green and glittery- there’s one to suit everyone’s taste and preference.

This year, don’t buy one from a store, rather making it yourself- whether it be a one-man task, or make it a family affair.

Sean Granger, General Manager of Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, shared his favourite style of wreath. “If you’re looking for a trendy and indigenous look, pick leaves and shrubbery from your garden and place them on your wreath, to create a beautiful, home-grown design.

It’s relatively quick, cost-effective, and fun activity for the whole family to enjoy” he says.

It’s easy to make:

  1. Start by soaking an oasis ring (available from most florists) in a basin of cold water for a few hours until it’s wet all the way through.
  2. Place it on a flat surface and push short pieces of ruscus, or whatever plant you have at home that is able to cover up spaces nicely, around the edges to hide the plastic backing.
  3. Next, position your largest greenery pieces to create focal points around the wreath, and fill in the gaps with smaller pieces that you picked.

It’s as simple as that, so why not make your Christmas a memorable one, and create a homemade wreath to welcome any guests who pop by this December!
