Christmas Wreath From Foraged Foliage

We love a traditional festive wreath to decorate our front door, this one is from a couple of years ago but we will soon be making the annual trip to the local woods to gather this years materials.

For the hoop we use Willow, twisting the thin branches into a hoop to give us a sturdy base to work on.

We then attach a mixture of Yew, Pine, Holly, and Ivy for the filling. To attach to the hoop we use nettle or other natural fibres  laying the stems along the willow hoop in a clockwise pattern. Adding a little more of the cordage to form a hoop at the top to hang.
