Review: Making Christmas Wreaths with Hobby Craft

Thursday, December 12, 2013

Remember me saying I wanted to make a Christmas Wreath? Well the team at Hobby Craft must have been listening as they offered me the chance to review a wreath making kit! My front room is now starting to fill up with handmade festive decorations but this was by far the most fun. In the package they sent me I received one plain wreath, and a selection of christmassy looking pieces to attach to it however I like. As this was such a simple task I had my crafty assistant Gracie help me with this one. She was in charge of deciding what went on the wreath and where the bits went.

The first thing she chose was the silver glittery flowers and we set out attaching them exactly where she wanted them (not quite evenly but very close!). We then decided the decorative pine cone should hang right in the centre of the wreath so I had to attach it just like a decoration on a tree and hope it stayed in place. She decided she didnt want the other flower piece as we already had enough flowers and so routed through our craft box to find more bits. She chose some little glittery apples and some 'jingle bells' . So we popped the extra pieces on and Tah Dah! Our Christmassy wreath was ready to hang up. To hang it up I simply tied some wire wool to the back and secured it on the wall with drawing pins. It couldn't be easier!

This was such a fun activity for us to do together. Gracie is so proud of herself, and although it's not perfect, everytime we look at it we remember what fun we had making it and that is what Christmas is all about! With all the Wreath Making products at Hobby Craft, you can make a home made wreath for less than £5!
