A hedgerow wreath

Today was a gloriously sunny, mild October day (well, until it rained, anyway!), so I went out with the children and my secateurs to forage for an autumnal wreath.

We found acorns, rose hips, firethorn berries and heather, to create a vibrant, eclectic collection - I'm still thinking of adding some chestnuts and conkers here to add some glossy depth. The spiky shells might even add some interest, too. When it comes to ingredients, there are no rules - often it's the most surprising things that are the most successful.
