But I think I will use ur idea this year, Alicat.
I have loads of tutorials for Christmas stuff so once I get onto a proper computer I will link them here
I had a quick glance on youtube last night so I think there's plenty of inspiration online!
Just one thing to note about the wreath; With so many baubles packed onto the wire, some of the pins can pop out, causing the baubles to fall off. It's recommended to take a bit of extra time beforehand to glue the pins to the bauble to make sure they stay put! Bought my glue gun last year and I love it

That wreath is fantastic! That honestly looks as good as anything you'd buy. I need to start picking up some nice baubles for these kind of projects.
I gave that one to my gran last year so I'm going to give it another go this year!
Yeah the boyfriend thinks I'm nuts already... I better make sure I leave all my crafts for when he's out of the house!

Haha, maybe not if you saw them up close!
But sure who's looking!
Some of them didn't turn out as well as others, but you learn as you go along. I got the general idea from the Better Homes website
and then just tweaked it depending on what supplies I could get.
