MOLLY & THE WREATH

Molly & The Wreath

Making a wreath is pretty much the perfect project.  It let’s you be creative at the same time as drinking mulled wine and having a good natter with friends.  It also means that if you’re taking part in my #MadeWithMolly Challenge you’ll have nailed this month’s project in a matter of hours …

All you need is a hoop (a modified coat hanger will do), some bits and bobs to decorate with and a roll of wire to hold the decorations in place.

If you haven’t made a wreath before, there’s loads of inspiration and tutorials online, like this brilliant step-by-step guide from Botanique Workshop.

Or how about a workshop?

On a freezing cold Sunday afternoon my friend Shelagh and I headed to a warm and beautiful venue in Cable Street for an afternoon of wreath making led by florist Henrietta Hickling.  It looked like Hetty had raided most of what Covent Garden Flower Market had to offer …

We were each provided with a metal hoop which we covered with a healthy layer of moss before we started adding fir, ivy, berries, dried fruit, ribbons, rosemary, fir cones and loads more.

Making a wreath isn’t rocket science, it’s just really fun.

(and here’s one someone else made, because I like it better than mine!)

  Hetty’s workshop cost £40 and included all materials, mulled wine AND chocolate brownies.

If you haven’t made a wreath yet, DO IT!
