Have you heard???

Hello friends

Have you heard of Balsam Hill??
They are a company who make truly realistic Christmas trees, garlands and wreaths.
Lots of celebrities buy from them....and little me!
This is their Norway Spruce wreath, literally pulled out of the box -
I was really impressed with how full it was.
You can also buy them pre-lit for that extra festive touch.
Each spine can be tweaked and 'fluffed up'!
I set about making a decoration for my wreath, I didn't want to cover the whole thing as 
I love the greenery so a little addition was the order of the day.
I made the complete decoration on a piece of hessian/burlap fabric which is tied on with twine,
this means I can remove it to store flat or if I change my mind (most likely!) 
I can decorate the wreath differently next year.
Classic Heart cut from fabric - cuts like a dream when you use a Metal Shim.
I cut two, added a little stuffing and glued the edges with Fabri-Tac.
Layered Poinsettias cut from felt and a pretty brad added to the middle.
Take a hop over to Balsam Hill's website here,
I'm loving the pre-lit trees that slot together in three pieces and they just light up!
This year I wrestled with two sets of lights with two kittens hanging off them!

Take care friends and stop by tomorrow - it's Friday Die Day!

I have been looking at their website too. I am interested in one of their half trees. We are sometimes tight for space in our lounge when guests arrive, but I love a full size big bushy tree, so half a tree might be my answer. I am going to try to "adapt" our existing tree first, but may purchase one if things go wrong.

Hi Christine. What a gorgeous wreath, you really wouldn't know it was artificial would you. I love the decoration too. I'm off to have a look at the Balsalm Hill site now. Have a good day at the office. Take care.

Well look at me so early in the morning, I should be getting ready for work! I love the look of this wreath, every year I want to make one and then run out of time this would solve my problem. Sorry I have missed a few comments a few family issues at the moment! I always check in to read. I love Bella enjoying the tree x

Love the wreath, I would not want to cover up the beautiful greenery either.
