It’s not just your outfits that should be suitably seasonal as the holidays draw closer – time to throw some glitter and garlands around the house and more importantly work on your annual Christmas wreath. Even better, Give your guest a fashionable welcome with a Lulu-fyed design. We talk you through our fool-proof guide below…
Begin with a blank wreath or create your own using a polystyrene wreath ring and various twigs, leaves and pine tree sprigs. To guarantee some Christmas kisses, mix in springs of mistletoe. The mistletoe we chose had a snowy effect to add to the festive cheer. Time to add some more texture; we chose delicate holly cuttings to add some depth and colour to the wreath. Fix all your additions with floristry wire.
YOU CAN’T BEAT A BAUBLE
What’s a Christmas decoration without a bauble? Grab some mini baubles and get wreath dressing – the more the merrier! We opted for a classic shade of red, but you could do some multi-coloured options.
The finishing touch to any Christmas decoration- a beautiful red bow. Pop at the top or bottom of your wreath, and cut the length of the ribbon tails to your liking. If you are placing the bow at the bottom of the wreath, make the tails slightly longer.
