Have your say

In this new column, the creative staff at Flowers N Things are going to demonstrate some simple crafts we can all have a go at.

It’s time to adorn your front door with a lovely Christmassy wreath.

Whether you opt for a holly or spruce wreath you can buy one ready made – we will design one to fit your theme or colour scheme.

Or why not have a go yourself? It couldn’t be easier. You can use any decorations that you already have to hand including baubles. Just attach a wire to each one. Make a bow or choose a ribbon from our large selection and we can make one for you.

1. Gather your plain holly or spruce ring, your bows and wired decorations.

2. Push wires through the wreath base, and bend into the back of the wreath to secure.

3. Add a hanger made of ribbon matching your bow, ensuring that it is knotted and wired very tightly.

Hang your creation proudly from your door and enjoy!

We do have one or two place left on our Christmas flower arranging workshops where you can come along and make a door wreath and a table centre in a relaxed and fun environment. Call us on 01775 769306 or find details at – or even better pay a visit to our Red Lion Street shop which is brimming with festive inspiration.
