TOP TIPS FROM ALINE HARDIE

Scottish Field - - A WILD CHRISTMAS -

Use a se­lec­tion of fo­liages. I used two va­ri­eties of holly, ivy and pine. Other fo­liages you can use in­clude eucalyptus, olive, branch and conifers.

- Cut all fo­liage to sim­i­lar lengths.

- Start by bunch­ing a se­lec­tion of fo­liages to­gether and ei­ther use twine or wire to wrap and con­stantly add to it.

- Keep all fo­liage fac­ing the same way. If you re­quire both ends to look the same do a smaller sep­a­rate sec­tion.

- Add lots de­tail, I used beau­ti­ful Red Free­dom and Naomi Roses, Pheas­ant tail feath­ers, pine cones and ilex berries. Cin­na­mon sticks, dried orange or ap­ple slices, or more fresh flow­ers. Ei­ther wire th­ese as you go or place on top.
