Creating Christmas

Set in the cosy den of Micklegate Social, I had the pleasure of creating some Christmas wreaths and festive jars, with some lovely people in York! After grabbing a drink at the bar we got stuck in with the wreaths, layering them up with foliage I’d scavenged from the forest floor/my garden.

Some of the greenery we used: Conifer, Fir, Holly, (unidentified berry plant!) and Ivy. We then spruced up our wreaths with some mini baubles, artificial frosty berries, cinnamon sticks and dried oranges, which by the way make them smell gorgeous! All of these you can find online.

We used oasis rings here, which can sit nicely as a centrepiece on a table but can also hang on the door.

Top tip! Get yourself some floristry wire, not only is this great for pinning your wreath into shape but also great for pulling together and anchoring your accessories which you can just plonk into place wherever you like, just leave yourself plenty of wire to reach the oasis at the bottom.

The festive jars were made from old mason jars, that were scooped up after a wedding couple were getting rid after their big day! For these I just picked up some Christmas wooden figures from Hobbycraft, including deer and trees. Using a glue gun we carefully placed these inside and jazzed up the tops or the outside with jewels, festive string and some mini lights. A little bit of fake snow can be seen in the bottom of some of these too. Super easy make!
