Indoor Christmas Wreath ... on a budget

I wasn't going to post this but Englishmum and I were just tweeting about the wreath on the front door  .. and I said I'd take a photo of the indoor wreath I made. Next thing I know I'm writing post! 

I don’t want to spent a fortune on Christmas decorations I’d much rather save my spare pennies and get some real roses for Christmas day… but in the run up to then I still like to make the place festive  .. so my indoor wreath is also on a budget and is made up of my dried hydrangea’s from in the garden, ivy from on the wall outside and left over cones and old cinnamon sticks.   I used silk roses, although they look very real, and a big white candle.  It took about 30 minutes to make and I popped it onto a large platter.  It looks so pretty with  candle lit in the evenings.

This is the cost breakdown:

Oasis Circle £3
3 x roses @ £1.50 each  £4.50
Candle £7
Greenery from the garden

Total Cost


  1. Just watch your little video and your right it looks gorgeous.

  2. You're so clever! I shall be rushing around on Monday buying oasis and collecting greenery. Thank you so much for the inspiration :)

  3. Looks to be beyond what you'd see for christmas wreaths in terms of adding your own personal style to it. The floral effect is a bit different to the traditional vertical evergreen composition but it works!


If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
