MAKE IT YOURSELF: Bring autumn to your home
A monthly column by Flowers N Things in Red Lion Street, Spalding
This autumnal ‘make it’ is a natural autumn door wreath and can be achieved using only foraged items.
Firstly, step outdoors and have a good look for twigs and conkers and any other lovely seasonal finds.
Lengths of willow are really flexible and it is easy to fashion them into a circle shape and secure with raffia or string by tying together tightly at intervals around the ring.
Hazel or any twigs that you can find will give a similar effect.
Once you have formed your ring it is time to fasten on your conkers and other ‘finds’ on to it.
You could use wire. Simply push the wire through your leaf or conker (you might need to skewer a hole first) and wire them onto the ring.
If you have a hot glue gun you could just glue the items directly onto the twiggy wreath. Tie a string or ribbon at the top and hang your masterpiece on the door!
