Each year, I issue myself a DIY Christmas Wreath Challenge. The rules are simple:
1. It must be Christmas-y
2. I can only use what I already have in the house and garden to construct it.
This year, I desperately wanted to go home for Christmas, but that didn’t happen – so I decided to bring a little bit of the southern hemisphere to me through my wreath.
One half of the wreath is decidedly southern hemisphere (why yes, I do have cocktail umbrellas on hand at all times – don’t you?) The other half has a northern hemisphere red and white motif.
This was started on the 22nd December, 2011. In fact, I posted a photo ages ago. It is now finished. Finally. In time for the child for whom it is intended to turn 1 year old.
