An Advent Wreath , prompted by Melchesedic


By driad


A lovely idea , so I have had a go .
Firstly , did I have the tools ? Well probably .
Secondly , having never worked with oasis , could I do it ? ( Loved oasis .)
Just get on with it , stop procrastinating !
Candles , I’ve had to settle for white at the moment , couldn’t get a pink one for Gaudet Sunday anywhere yet . I have some blue ones , but I think that I need mauve .
Gathered greenery from around the garden , so much to choose from when you think that nothing is suitable .
Anyway , have a look .

Looks really great. It is amazing what you can find in the garden when at first yu think there isn't anything!
Hope you don't light the candles though, with the greenery being so tall!

Thank you ladies , I'm thinking that I could do with something red in there .
I don't know the names of a lot of them Kidsgran , there is bay , thuya , mock castor oil , variegated privet , and a few others , all quite sweet smelling .
I'd better be aware of the fire hazard , Stera , wouldn't be the first time !
It kept me occupied on an extremely dismal Sunday afternoon , anyway .

If you can't find any red berries try swapping the candles for red ones - looks great and don't suffer from leaf drop!
