Christmas wreath from my first cold Christmas

Catching up on sharing some of the things I made over the busy Christmas period while travelling. This wreath / candle decoration was made using berries and leaves foraged from hedgerows in the English village we were staying in, and from my sister-in-law's garden. I was so tickled to see holly with actual red berries on it (being in the northern hemisphere for Christmas rather than in Australia where I normally am) that I just had to pick some and bring it inside. I didn't have any grand ideas on how to poll this off technically speaking so I just used a flat bowl to arrange the leaves and berries on. Features pine cones, holly, rose hips and many things I didn't recognise. Lasted a good few days looking fresh without any water.
