Last week I posted over on my Instagram this years table DIY Christmas garland… did you see it? I’m still in love with my most prized Christmas creation! 😉
Pre Christmas sales shopping!
I’ve been looking for something like this for a while… I very nearly picked up a wreath to cute up when I saw one in Aldi’s Christmas Special Buys a good month or so but I didn’t have the money!
I’m glad I didn’t though because this one is so much much better AND I made it all by myself!
As they do every year B&Q start to reduce their Christmas stock in the 2 weeks prior to Christmas day so I started with a 3ft £3 B&Q Christmas tree for the foliage.. taking it out of the box, laying it down and spreading out only the top layer of the branches.
Obviously it still had the shape of a Christmas tree but nothing that a trim and extensions would solve (what I cut off the bottom I added to the top!) 😉
We bought out current Christmas tree from B&Q in the sale a few years back. We had even put the old one up but after seeing one we really liked just a week before Xmas we ending up taking the old one down and replaced it pretty damn close to Christmas!
The decorations on the wreath came to max £10. They too were discounted (not by much but at least something!) and they all worked perfectly with the green foliage and my already gold table decorations.
So note to self; remember to keep popping into your nearest B&Q in the run up to the big day for some Christmas bargains or check them out online. You never know what you might pick up and I think you will be pleasantly surprised that is for sure!
Thanks for reading!
