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!
