Festive Christmas decorations are a great way to cheer up a hall, porch or patio. And you can save money by creating your own homemade decorations using plants from the garden.
Holly and ivy have been used to make this traditional door wreath with a modern twist. Here, we’ve created a star-shaped decoration, but you could also create a square, circle, heart or even a Christmas tree. The arrangement takes a little care to assemble – the key to success is creating a defined outline and keeping the shape in mind as you gradually build the wreath. Take time to step back and check the decoration from a distance every now and then, and substitute sprigs or trim to fit the shape, if necessary, making sure all the foam is covered.
Give your home some festive cheer, by creating our holly and ivy Christmas star decoration.
