We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Beginning to feel a ho ho ho coming on ...

I'm playing catch-up with what the Fearless Four have been up to; I've still not finished one project from a couple of months ago, but at our last get together - the last one of the year - we decided to get all festive and create some Christmas wreaths.  We all used up stuff we had lying around.

I delved into my various boxes of stuff and found some cream hessian, which I used to wrap around a polystyrene wreath. I used book glue to anchor it down.

Then, using up some Christmas papers, I die-cut some poinsettas (the tattered ones from Sizzix), and some fir leaves too(from glitter card), all attached with pearl-headed pins and glue. Finished off with a hessian printed bow.

And the others?

Linda used up some die-cuts from an old kit, and added a sparkly bow.

Monica used hessian and ribbon to wrap her wreath, then added some more ribbon and cinnamon sticks (quite old ones!).

Lin did two smaller wreaths using die-cuts and old Christmas decorations, plus some more sparkly ribbon.

Fab time had by all, and a great way to use up Christmassy stuff!

Happy Christmas week!
