I would love to show you all of my purchases, but I am going to have to wait until tomorrow.. my husband has taken my camera to work..
But I would love to show you some wreaths I made on Friday for our WI Craft fair this weekend.
Chillies and limes. (The chillies are ones I grew myself - Joe's Long Cayenne, well worth growing for eating and this sort of thing. I did a trial of 10 different varieties of chillies this year and this was definitely my favourite). If you would like to have a go at making your own wreath for Christmas have a look at my step by step instructions.
This other one has apples and verbena bonariensis.
Come back tomorrow if you'd like to see what I picked up at the CL Fair!

5. Snip into small sections and wire onto the wreath. You need to keep wrapping the wire around and around. Make sure that every side is covered. Thats it, its really that easy!
