December is gently creeping up on us and so of course it’s time to deck the halls with all things festive.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a step-by-step tutorial from the expert team at WILDABOUT - so for any of you crafty types out there please see our ‘How to’ guide, courtesy of their very talented florists.

If you would prefer to leave this to the experts we are actually offering you the chance to win your very own bespoke Christmas wreath, delivered to your door and because no festive ‘cosy up’ is quite the same without a new pair of PJ's we are also throwing in a pair of Emily and Fin pyjamas for you and a friend!

What you will need:

Step by step guide:

Step. 3
