Do you love fresh flowers, but hate the way they fade after a few days? Are you looking for wreaths that aren't just for Christmas? Maybe you feel that bunting should be for every day, not just parties? You're in luck - Kate Eastwood has designed 35 colourful and natural-looking wreaths and garlands just for you, with something to suit every time and every place. Crochet a Hearts Garland for Valentine's Day, or an Easter Egg Wreath full of the colours of spring. In summer, a garland of bright gerbera flowers will brighten up your hallway. For autumn, a ring of crocheted pumpkins will look great on your front door, and for Christmas there's everything from a Candy Cane Wreath to a Gingerbread Garland. If you want a make that will look good all year round, try the Bobbly Bunting in gentle pastels, or the Shaker Birdhouses Garland in soft, neutral shades to suit any room.
