We were set a challenge to make a festive wreath by our friends over at ‘Mum in the Mad house’….so we accepted….
We’ve never made a real wreath as an activity before so thought we’d give it a crack…..the perfect opportunity for an adventure.
We decided to head to the forest for a festive afternoon to search out the ideal tree to decorate for our appreciation of the Christmas trees home and to leave the woods nice and sparkly for the Christmas reindeer that supposedly practice their night flight there…
We took some decorations and some garden wire, cutters, ribbon & Poundland battery operated fairy lights to make our wreaths.
Here’s how we got on…
the tree looked fab and shall remain there until after Christmas when the flight reindeer finish practicing and we return to de-decorate it.
We then headed to the lake to find a spot to make our wreaths picking up pine branches as we went…and pine cones too
Thank you Mum in the Mad House, we enjoyed our challenge and our memories hang nicely on the door.
