Wreath 'How To'

Wreath 'How To'

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Here’s a little project I’ve been working on…Get one of these 16-18” wire wreath frames from here.
Find some preserved boxwood, magnolia leaves (actually I used preserved lemon leaves), and other orange berry stick type things. I know the name of the plant I used was on my receipt which is somewhere lost in my wallet, sorry! I picked up my boxwood and lemon leaves (and actually some dried juniper for some other projects) at a local wholesale craft shop and the fresh orange berry twigs came from local wholesale flower warehouse. Gotta have a wreath hanger and that wire will become your new best friend. Don’t forget the wire cutter!
And…Voila! After Thanksgiving, when I start to get more Christmasy I’m going to remove the orange berries and add some pomegranates using floral pics, oh and maybe a big gold bow for fun!

I highly recommend listening to Motown Christmas on Pandora when participating in these Christmas craft activities!
