Bloom and Wild co-designed their The Fin wreath with British Illustrator Fin Fellowes (hence the name). The great thing about The Fin is you can have it delivered through your letterbox in two parts, which then join together to complete the circle. Another fantastic thing about The Fin? 10% of the sales are donated to St Mary’s Hospital More Smiles Appeal to help their vision for a top tier intensive care unit for children.
How to make Christmas wreaths
Of course, you can always dabble in a spot of DIY and make your own Christmas wreath.
Self-proclaimed botanical adventurer and florist to fashion houses Hermes and Vivienne Westwood, Robbie Honey explains exactly how. Using only a pre-made base, cable ties and a few branches, wreath making just became the easiest new skill to show off to your friends about.
Step One: Robbie starts by using a blue pine base that you can buy from New Covent Garden Market. Once you have your base, let your imagination run wild, as your wreath is ready and waiting for some festive decoration.
Step Two: Going for the au natural look, Robbie uses pure white Cyclamen plants and Magnolia branches for a velvety feel and lichen-covered terracotta pots to add to the wreath, creating a wild and rustic look.
Step Three: Once the wreath is complete, Robbie attaches it to the doorframe using wires and ribbon. Just remember to also attach cable ties to make sure it’s safe and secure.
Wallah. It’s a Christmas miracle.
