Pootles Advent Countdown #3 Christmas Wreath Tutorial

Eeeeeeek!

I had to do it didn’t I….. Remake a beautiful wreath that I’ve made not once but twice before!

I absolutely love these and they genuinely live in my house all year around. The butterfly one has taken a little hit when I took it to a craft event, but otherwise, they’re in situ and look rather lovely I think!

It’s difficult to show how lovely these are when it’s dark and the lights are glowing, but hopefully this photo will give you a vague idea….

However…. I can’t find the original wreaths that I bought, so if you do an Amazon search for Light Wicker Wreath you’ll find a whole variety of them. Mine are 9″, but there are lots of 8 and 10″ versions. The battery operated fairy lights are however easily available. These are the ones I bought.

And to finish up, this is my list of supplies that I used.

  1. I have to confess that I bought a string of ikea lights right after I saw your butterfly wreath. I also bought a box of ikea LED tea lights as I loved last year’s vellum ornament.

  2. Cute!
    Sam, my order still says picking – after one week now…

    • But I have just seen that the money was taken from my account 2 days after ordering…

      • I am so sorry about this. Our warehouse moved that weekend when you placed your order and it took 4 days to do it. They were a bit behind and managed to cause a computer problem too so orders are stuck looking like they’re still in Picking.

        We know for definite that orders for 16th – 20th have been despatched and in some cases have arrived already. I’m going to make a guess that yours will arrive today.

        So sorry again. I’ve spoken to head office again today about this

        S xx

  3. Hi Sam, I to placed an order a week ago and money has been taken from my account 2 days later.

  4. Sam…..Love your tutorials. Have made many of your boxes, etc. I have asked before that you speak up louder and slower. Very hard to understand you and hear you…very frustrating. Am I the only one that has this problem? My volume is to the highest it will go so it isn’t on my end. Please give this matter your attention. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. j

    • I have absolutely no problems understanding Sam. I just have my volume up 1/4 and that is already loud enough. Neither my iPad nor my desktop computer are having any problems. Hope that helps

      • For some reason, the videos are barely understandable. I don’t have problems with any of the other sites. Sam speaks fast and then drops her voice at the end of her sentences. I have my volume at 100% for everything and I am not hard of hearing. Just thought I would try to solve the problem. Guess I am the only one that has the problem. Thanks for your comment.

        • I think you are unfortunately Arlene. When you’ve mentioned it before I’ve asked other people and tested myself and there haven’t been any other reports of problems. Unfortunately I can’t change my accent either!

          • OM Goodness! Sam, I love your accent! I was just saying with the volume not working correctly plus your lovely accent it was hard to understand. I guess I will have to keep my face to the screen. Love your videos and learn so much.

          • sending big squishy hugs! I know what you mean xx

    • Hi Arlene, my mouth is only a few inches away from my microphone so I know that it’s not a volume issue from my end. I haven’t heard other complaints so I wonder if it’s an issue inside your computer speakers?

      • Hi Arlene. I have no trouble hearing Sam from my iPad and iPhone but sometimes the volume from my laptop is a little too low due to ambient noise. May I suggest that you use earphones or a wifi speaker with your device?

  5. For your U.S. followers: I checked Amazon and they do not ship it to the U.S.A. due to the hazardous content. It isn’t even on the Amazon USA site. Thought that was very interesting. I’ve seen the wicker wreaths at The Dollar Store, for those who have this store in their area.

    • Okay that’s weird!!!! x

      • The U.S. TSA is rather strict when it comes to organic items like plant-based and animal based products. I’ve read that they’ve had disastrous dormant-seeming parasites like wood worms accidentally spread and destroying crops. Last December The TSA manually searched my handbag for fruit that they thought I might have brought over from the Philippines where I’m from… It was an EOS lip balm!

  6. I knew it was a good idea to check your blog if I could find anything on the delay in my order. I had already wondered since they’re usually so quick with the delivery! (I ordered on the 23rd)

    I guess I’ll keep my fingers crossed that it arrives soon.

    Otherwise, you keep inspiring me to try things outside of just making cards and all the wonderful ways that stamps can be used. I always love watching your videos! 🙂

  7. If you were raised in America, then you undoubtedly had a childhood in which you experienced salespeople concerning
    the door. How did your moms and dads react to that?
    What kind of comments that they make about salespeople?

    Whatever your company is. You need to strike them ‘hard’ with
    your message about your company. Once more, it has to be short, sharp,
    and to the point. It needs to inform the visitor in just
    a few short lines ‘exactly’ what you’re about.

    If you have a very web-page up that’s fine.

    However your message might strike people even ‘more difficult’
    if it was standing alone on a white background without any diversions or
    frills anywhere to be seen. Just your crucial message
    and a divert link or telephone number for more information.

    Most of the times, the advertisement sales rep will certainly
    be distressed to tell you the specials they have readily available.
    Ask if they don’t provide. You may feel uncomfortable, however
    it’s OKAY to request for a price cut. That’s
    how ad companies get excellent pricing for their customers.

    This is a necessary concern, particularly if you run your web company marketing making use of the search engine rankings.
    It is difficult to state this exactly, since the competitors vary keyword by keyword.
    But to get some idea, if you utilise the long tail keyword with a monthly global variety of searches of
    about 2.000, you could succeed.
    The author of the post went on to highlight a “Want a free roofing?”
    advertising indication posted by a roofing company. Probabilities are, as soon as the roofer has the unsuspecting homeowner in his clutches that “complimentary” roofing is going to end up costing a quite penny.
    Lesson number 2, to steal another tired maxim, “There is no free lunch”.
    or roofing as the case may be.
    No doubt its only a one liner to put a title for the short
    article. But do spend a minimum of 25 % to 50 % of your time in creating a great effect title for the post.

    Yes its that wish for you to believe your short article over and over again and create the finest
    you can think about. internet marketing Do spend at
    least 30 to 15 minutes for the title if you spend
    1 hour (not that this is right) to write an article.
    I would such as to show you some of the experiences that I gone through which you can stay clear of and at the
    same time will certainly conserve you hundreds or countless hours doing ineffective advertisings.

    The scoundrels at these stock investing robot web pages attempt
    to pass this “software application” off as being deserving of $28,
    000 per license. I ask to vary. In reality, my buddy about
    at Student Trader researched the coding of
    a person of these programs and discovered it had not been a plan at
    all. The system in inquiry just fetched a preloaded choice from a server the
    minute a day, pretending to do perform along the way.
