Making Advent Wreaths

Had a lovely evening walk picking fresh materials for our advent wreath ..

using an oasis florist base soaked in Water to increase its life ...

adding longish fir twigs to the outer ring

adding some thin leaf greenery to next row

next some Holly .. ouch very spikey

filling center with some pebbles ...

adding some vanilla scented candles in the middle

some fircones to cuddle the candles :)

lush berries .. not sure what they are called .. anyone ?

added some ball decoration and its finished :)

time to light the candle ...

bright blessings for a joyful advent to all :)
