hello
 
yes, i know its early but a friend made christmas wreaths for her friends last year, but she won't tell me how to make them as she think's i'll just sell them!
 
i won't as i think the time and effort the goes in to them would make them cost hundreds of pounds but i'd like to make one for myself and my mum etc.
 
she used a polystyrene ring and covered it in fabric.  then she made lots of leaf shaped bits and sewed them all onto the ring. apparently, its similar to doing a christmas tree!!???
 
if anyone can understand what i'm trying to describe and can let me have a pattern or tell me how to do it i'd really appreciate it!

I have been searching for this for ages now. The archives don't go back to Nov 2007. Is it possible to either publish this on the web site or could you send me the instructions to bobkimwood@btinternet.com .Thank you so very much.

Good morning Lou,
I have a simple Christmas Wreath for you....its just hearts stitched onto a florists wire wreath....there are several sizes of ring and they are very cheap to buy..
I made this one for my son a few years ago in the gold and cream fabrics he wanted.
You can decorate them if you wish but he did not want that.
Hope this will be of use to you.
Cherrio,
Marlene

Lou, Here is another very easy one! a wire coat hanger, pulled into a circle,leave the hook for hanging. Cut 2" pieces of scrap Christmas fabrics and just tie on all around,then add a few small Christmas decorations bells lights etc for effect. Liz

It looks a squashed circle but if you click on it you will get it the proper shape! Liz
