Decorate your home with a cheap and gorgeous wreath from your garden!
I made one of these wreaths last winter and my Mum has been admiring it all year. With summer in full bloom and her garden as green as ever, I decided to show her how to make her own.

  • How to make a wreath. Summer Garden Wreath - Step 1
    Step 1

    The only thing you need to buy for this project is a wreath hoop. You could even make your own out of wire - but I got some cheap on eBay. You'll also need some wire cutters and extra wire.
