It seems love forever since Ive sat below and worked on a paper crafting project.

Festive leaves wreath
Another lovely alternative to a traditional wreath is to go for warm hues using leaves, twigs and berries. The lovely folks over at Bloom & Wild own given us a hand with this super simple guide
You will need:
1. Bind generous handfuls of moss on to the wire wreath frame with mossing wire.
To do this, fasten one finish of the reel of the wire to the ring and wrap around the moss in a circular fashion, keeping it taut, and adding handfuls of moss until well covered.
2. Add seasonal foliage (such as Eucalyptus cinerea and Skimmia japonica, but you can use holly or other greenery), by pushing the ends deep into the moss base, working to roughly a 45 degree angle. Use a variety of materials to create an exciting and textured wreath; here, crab apples were added for colour and rosemary for scent and texture.
3. Insert additional items, such as orange slices or pine cones on a wire.
Before adding the oranges, bundle them together into threes with wire.
4. Finish off the wreath with a generous bow. To make this, first tie the ribbon and then affix with wire.
