Nature in the Home - Autumn/Winter term, week 4...

On Sunday, we took a walk around the Plantation Walk at Tyntesfield Estate.  The weather was so beautiful wasn't it? I found some greenery and Rosehips for this weeks Nature in the Home.  Once home, I set to making this little mini wreath.

What I used:
* Small embroidery hoop - approx 10cm width
* Bakers twine
* Scissors
* Green floristry wire (not shown)
* Ivy flower heads
* Rosehips
* Yew leaves (I think it is Yew, or a version of, found on the Estate).

I started by trimming all the excess leaves from the Rosehips and Ivy flowers.  Then using short lengths of wire tie in the greenery.  I like to keep the direction of the leaves to flow the same way.

Add the Rosehips and Ivy in the same way.  Add the Bakers Twine to the top.  And hang.

Perfect for Autumn and even more perfect for Christmas!  There I said it!!
Have fun!

Over to you...
