Making Holly Wreaths

My mum and I sat up tonight and made two wreaths. One for my Granny and my husband's Granny. They both live in Wales and we are going to visit for the weekend. The total cost came to about £8.00 per wreath. 

Process was:-

1. Soak the oasis ring in water for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy a glass of wine while you wait! 
2. Get some pot pourri and some flower wire and bind some of the pine cones, dried oranges and big pieces ready.
3. Cut some Holly into small pieces with stalks and other pretty foliage from the garden.
4. Once you are ready to start mentally divide the oasis into thirds. Cover using plain green foliage, add the holly and then feature flowers and pine cones etc.
5. Place on a plate. Put a candle into the middle and admire your work! 
6. Give away as presents and always keep one for yourself. 
7. As maintenance just dribble water into the oasis.

Tip- always make sure you can't see any oasis and enjoy the wine! 

Alternative The Night Before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas when all through the house 
Everything stirred as you screamed and not like a mouse
The snot was running down onto your lip 
And the tears were pouring and your hands were in a tight fist
The sound of Father Christmas tucking into his mince pie 
Had woken you and you started to cry 
Ruldoph and the other reindeer were startled up on the roof
The lights came on as mummy and daddy were woken by their prancing hooves
You realised Father Christmas was there and started to dance and sing  
When I looked at daddy and said "where is the gin?"
I asked Father Christmas "a little quieter next year is my only wish"
He replied "well you best make sure you are no longer on my naughty list"
