Spare Baubles

Hello my lovely crafty friends, l hope you are all well. Are you ready for christmas? l have tried to plan and prepare at a steady pace but a nasty cough and cold has slapped me in the face and slowed me right down but after a couple of mornings in bed l am hoping l have shaken it off but will keep taking the medicine for a little while longer.
My grandaughter finishes school friday lunchtime so that may be a baking day.

This year l bought far more baubles than l needed so my girls took them for their trees but l still had a bag left from last years - l kept looking at them and thinking..... a trip to the allotment where l knew l had holly with berries, a bit of pine and conifer, a coat hanger and a bit of ribbon and this is what l made.

I have never made a wreath before and l am quite pleased with the result, l think l will be looking around the sales for cheap baubles and raiding the wardrobe for wire hangers to make them for family next year.  I have hung it by the door - What do you think???

I would like to enter this into the following challenge
Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas Card - or festive project - holpe this counts ;)

Wishing you all peace and happiness for the festive season x Susan x

What a beautiful festive wreath Susan and a great way to use baubles, never thought of that one.

I do hope you feel better soon, so many people seem to be suffering with it, SIL Richard included and you know what men are like when they get man flu.

Thanks you also for your kind works about scenic stamping and looks like you make a good start with my lovely Christmas card.

I can't believe this is your first time making a wreath, it looks like it's made by a pro. So beautiful and wonderful details. Hope you feel better very soon! We all have been sick here too! Just hope we don't catch anything else.
Take care!!
