What you need to know

Val Pierce’s knitted nursery wreath features a happy honey bear, busy bees and a flowery branch.

If you know a new baby is on the way or the kids’ bedroom needs a pep up, this honey-loving teddy bear wreath is just the thing to knit. The wreath cover itself is simply a strip of stocking stitch with speckles of white in stranded colourwork, and while there are various small elements, the good news is that none of them take very long. A glue gun makes light work of attaching all the elements, so you could be sharing your new dec with a little one sooner than you think.

Top knit tips

When finishing off the wreath, pin all components in place first before gluing them to ensure you get the look you want.

These handy and inexpensive gadgets come into their own for quickly putting together decorations that aren’t handled or moved frequently. A rod of glue is inserted into a chamber that melts the glue when the gun is plugged in or switched on. By pulling the trigger a small stream of glue is released. Rest on a scrap of card as the nozzle can leak if not used for a few minutes and keep some cotton buds handy for quickly wiping away any excess. Always switch off if not in use for more than a few minutes.
