Rustic Christmas wreath
Make your own beautiful Christmas wreath using your garden’s winter bounty – Amber Partner shows you how
Christmas is the perfect time to tap into your creative spirit and harness nature’s bounty to make beautiful foraged decorations for your home. This Christmas wreath is simple to make, gorgeous, sustainable and recyclable.
It includes a little bit of everything: greenery foraged from the garden creates the base layer, with seedheads and dried flowers woven in to add texture and interest. Pine cones, willow stems, thistles and frothy clematis seedheads were added at the end to give a natural look. Read the full guide to making this wreath, and more festive projects from Amber, in our December magazine.
