DH gets crafty

Last Friday dh had the day off work. I went out early to the hairdressers, and told him I'd be gone most of the morning. When I came home he was making this. DH has never made a wreath before, but I think he did a great job. It's huge, I asked him if he thought we lived in a big house with a huge door. LOL. Anyway, so far my visitors have all loved the wreath, and loved it even more when I've told them dh made it. It's all natural, he made the circle by stripping some willow, he cut off a tree, it then has some lovely non prickly holly, with red berries, and then some very prickly green holly, which has attacked me twice so far. I had trouble getting a good photo of it, partly because of it's size, and it's pretty dull here, so I've used a photo editor to lighten the pic a little, but I hope you can get the idea of it's size and you like it too. Wish you all lived nearer, and then I'd get him to make you one too.
