Holly Wreaths

On the 12th of December a man called Robert came to help us make Holly Wreaths. First he gave us a piece of circular wire with hooks at the end of it. Then we had to take about three pieces of palm branches. After that we got a piece of twine to tie the wire and bits of palm together .Then you had to hook both sides of the wire together – it made a circle. We then put bits of holly with berries onto it.. There was only one downfall-the holly was very, very spiky!! It was brilliant fun and we kept the wreaths too To make it look beautiful, we tied a ribbon to it. It was great fun.

Comments from pupils who made wreaths include:

My wreath is now hanging on the door. It was great fun doing these wreaths. Much better to make your own than to buy them.  It is also possible to make the wreaths by using moss instead of palm. “Pupils and teachers enjoyed this day immensely” “We had a laugh…. Proudly I showed mine to the lads.” “The holly on the wreaths hurt a lot…….everyone in my family loved the wreath” .
