One of Those Advent Activities...

One of the things that I wanted to do this advent was to make our very own Christmas wreath. I have never made one before, but being a big fan of everything homespun, it has been something I have wanted to do for YEARS. So it got added to the 'Advent Planning' list this year.

Now the girls had been feeling a little closeted in during the week and it began to show one afternoon - if you know what I mean ;o) So as soon as 'school' was out, I let them go out for a walk around the country paths that surround our home. I heard them slip back in quietly and then slip out again. ' I want you back before the sun goes down' I called after them. The sun is setting before 16h30 these days so they only had about half an hour.

Knowing that they had been stretching my patience that afternoon, they clearly felt the need to 'make up' and came home bearing gifts...

Yip, they had been gathering wreath materials ;o) - so sweet!

So with impatience forgotten, J-L wielded the camera and V-L and I wielded evergreens and twine...
Excuse the bad hair day please ;o)
Of course a bit of silliness was in order...

We were really pleased with our very first wreath - a good joint effort I thought.

Of course it looks just beautiful hanging on our front door.

I like making wreaths, I think that we might just make one for Easter next year!
