Making your own natural festive decorations, particularly wreaths, is a wonderful festive activity. Katie Smyth and Terri Chandler love to forage for seasonal materials and to incorporate bounty they have harvested and dried throughout the year into their wreaths. There’s a surprising amount of greenery even in winter, so keep your eyes peeled when on winter walks – just don’t gather plants from protected sites.

Look for ingredients that will keep their shape as they dry out, so your wreaths will last. You can also buy dried flowers, berries and seed heads from florist suppliers to add extra sparkle to your decorations. By using foraged ingredients and avoiding plastic waste, you can celebrate the season in a planet-friendly way – plus, many of the elements can be reused next year!
