then while reu had his morning nap, I set about today's merry-making - a fresh door wreath.
I used a wreath base Alex made using ivy vines but anything similar would work well. Then using a selection of fresh greenery like pine, ivy, mistletoe and holly plus some red berries and chillies I twisted the stems in and around the vines - I didn't need to use any additional wire but you might like to use some to really keep things in place. Finally I wrapped a length of red ribbon around the wreath and tied the two ends up the top creating a loop to hang the wreath from. Hang on the door or wherever you need a little festive colour!
