A Rustic Christmas Wreath

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you are having a great weekend - so far.
Happy to say the weather improved enough yesterday morning to get out for a walk - although my ankle was feeling it - I can walk on it ok - but my walking shoes just sit right where the bruising is and of course just like any bruise it hurts to touch it - ouch :o(

Today I think I will rest it and have a lovely crafty play in my little crafty haven :o)

As I don't have my usual Sunday morning inspiration for The Stamp Basket to share with you - Janet has now made the hard decision to close the online shop down - there are some amazing bargains to be had - full details here I thought I would pop by to share another Home Decor piece I made recently.

And here's what I did:

I started by wrapping some '25cm Faux Hessian' from The Ribbon Girls around a polystyrene ring and then created a floral and foliage arrangement using 'Ruby Red' Rolled Roses, 'Burgundy 20mm Open Roses',  'Frosted Brown Cones', The Hobby House 'Vintage Blooms - Cream'  Iced Berries 'Gold' from Polkadoodles and Doo Hickey 'Sprawling Ferns' 

Challenges I would like to enter:

Crafting at the Weekend - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Something Round
Alphabet Challenge - 'R' For Round or Rectangle
Polkadoodles - Not a Square 

Thanks for popping by to see me today.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Debbs
Just gorgeous, love it.
I must get my Wreath out and have a play!
i did an Autumn sale today and did really well, made quite a lot of money which is great when you work so hard making stuff isn't it?
Hope your ankle gets better soon.
