Hand-made festive wreath

This was an exciting project for me, making my first wreath for our new home with the help of my talented friend Imelda. Here's the visual story of how it happened, starting with the holly and evergreen collection from the field next to home!

I started with Imelda's posh wreath bases made from moss covered straw.  Next made small bundles of mixed evergreen and tied them to the base with fine metal wool. This carries on right around the wreath till it is completely covered. 

Finish with oven dried orange slices, bundles of cinnamon and bright red Christmassy ribbon!
