Festive Wreath for Free!

 Hubby and I went for a walk today, to the fields and lanes near our home. We came home laden with lovely seasonal branches from the hedgerows, so I decided to make a Christmas wreath for our front door... 

I made the wreath base in exactly the same way as last year, using fallen branches from the silver birch tree in our garden. 
I then just pushed in short lengths of the foliage and berry laden branches till it was full.
Its ended up quite large this year - The width of our front door!
(Tufts of sheep's wool found on our walk, which I left decorating the hazel branches.)

Lovely gingham ribbon bow was wired in place. 
Welcome to our home,
