Luke 1:29-31 ESV
But Mary was greatly troubled at the Angel’s saying and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
Today, use the last of your woodland gatherings to make a wreath for your home.
Simply take your garden wire and form a rough circle shape, two or three times, entwining the wire as you go.
Once you have your basic wreath shape, simply tuck in short sprigs of evergreen, such as holly, pine, yew, box and so forth. Attach them well with lengths of twine. Also add in berries, fir cones, seed pods, rose hips, ivy, or whatever else takes your fancy!
This will be a truly special decoration for your home, made with love, and representative of your family’s own special nature spot.
Display with pride!
