    i got it from my local christmas shop (yno one of those that open a empty shop and fill it with xmas things to buy!) was only £3.99
    but i know they deffo do nice ones in the range for £9.99 but they are very long!

    the above are for GARLANDS.

    if your after a wreath to go on the door they do plain one from wilkos for a couple of quid and also in tesco :thumbup:
