Our blog is dedicated to seasonal living: cooking with local produce (sometimes our own), sewing for the home and searching out vintage bargains.

We believe that most of the pleasure is in the journey - in the making and creating, even if in a simple way.

Christmas Door Ring

You need some florists' wire and a wire ring (from the garden centre). Collect some moss from your garden, or buy some also from the garden centre. Use greenery and holly, preferably with berries. Use some ting-ting and ribbon for decoration. Collect some pine cones, and if you like, spray them with gold paint. Working in a clockwise direction, wire in the moss. Cover this with the greenery, again working in a clockwise direction and wiring in to secure. Add pieces of holly and wire in some pine cones. Finish by adding a loop of wire or ribbon to hang, some ting-ting and a ribbon bow at the bottom. Easy and homemade!
