Making a Christmas Wreath: A How-to Guide from Woolley Grange
Every year we swear we’ll make our own wreath – and every year we gfoirget, or get intimidated by stratingt he task, or don’t have what we need, and end up not doing so. And every year we promise that NEXT year will be the year.
Finally – 2014 IS the year. We did it!
And how and why we did it is down to the lovely Head gardener from Woolley Grange, who made a video tutorial that even we could follow. And being able to combine it with a walk in the woods to collect all the bits we needed made it a fabulous family activity that we all got involved with – even the dog!
The children LOVED creating from the greenery we collected, and take huge pride in the finished wreath that hangs proudly on our door.
In the video, Eliza (head gardener at Woolley Grange in Wiltshire), shows you how to make a gorgeous Christmas wreath using natural elements entirely from the hotel gardens (you can buy anything you can’t find from florists or online).
