Easiest Christmas wreath ever!

We have an over growth of ivy at our place, so I though it might work well in a wreath. Took me all of 5 minutes to make!

1. Stretch a wire coat hanger into a circular shape (don't destroy the hook)
2. Cut some lengths of ivy
3. Wrap ivy around the coat hanger, covering up gaps and trying to coax the leaves out front
4. Add a few decorations
5. Hang it up!

Might add a few more decorations to it or tweak the ivy a little, but for five minutes work it's not bad.

MTOTD: Car Seat manuals

My mum tip of the day!
If your car seat doesn't have a pocket for the manual, make one yourself.

Mine was made by folding a ziplock bag to size, then taping it onto the back of the seat (where exploring little fingers can't get to it), taking care not to tape up the bag opening. Keeps the manual handy if you ever need to refer to something while you are out and about. :)
