Christmas Wreath

As Christmas fast approaches, I start to get all the decorations out and sorted ready to go up on the first Saturday of December. Which by the way is in 7 days time!!!!!
I love to have some sort of decoration on my front door and in the past it has been a small token out of my tree decoration box.
But this year I wanted something a little bigger and of course I had to down the 'do it myself' route too!!
I found a plain wreath in a sale held at work (but you can buy them in stores like HobbyCraft).
The cute little pine cone clusters were found on a tree in the countryside around my home. These were dead easy to attach.
The holly decorations I bought in HobbyCraft, I went with two different kinds.
And the little birdies I made myself.
And a couple of close ups.
And Di has also been busy, inspired by Trish's rag wreath. "I cut a ring from thick cardboard using a dinner plate as the template. Then just tied on strips of fabric, red felt and green ribbon."
Then I used some left over 'tartan' fat quarters and calico for a more traditional look!
Thanks for visiting
