Making Holly Wreaths and Piskie Shoes
Here I am ...hiding behind a bunch of holly branches that I have just pruned carefully out of my beautiful Holly tree . I always like to make my own simple Holly Wreath.
I should be able to make two or three from this bundle...one for a good friend , one for my sweet daughter and one for me .
No sooner have I laid the holly on my kitchen table ...than my little helpers arrive !
The deal is this .....they help me to make the Holly Wreath with a little bit of Cornish Piskie fairy magic ..........
.........and I will make their dancing shoes !
The long stringy branches are fairly flexible to twine around themselves into a circle . I tie them around firmly with garden twine at several points ..if the branches are not so flexible I would use some wire...and tie a lovely red ribbon on ....at the top ...or at the bottom . You can add other things onto it too ...but I like to keep it simple to hang on my front door .
