Welcome to our friends from Melissa's holiday decorating carnival!
I've had this grapevine wreath for years now- I love it! In every season I can fill it full of new stuff, and it hardly costs a thing to change my look.
I've always loved berry wreaths, but they're so expensive! I pruned these berries off some tall bushes growing along the west fence in my yard- I'm not sure what they are. Magic Bamboo? Witch Hazel? Whatever they were...they're wreath material now, baby! They're fairly boring bushes, and tall, most of the year so I had meant to tear them out over the summer. I'm glad I didn't- I think I'll leave them there just for the free wreath every year! I clipped berries and red-leafed branches last year and put them, dry, in a vase- the color stayed true when they dried. I'm hoping this wreath will last until the new year.
For construction, I just stick stuff in- no wire, no tape. Easy peasy, rice and cheesy!
Oh look- here's my Spring wreath!
Have you started decorating for the Christmas/Holiday/Winter season? Ernie and Wonder Daddy put up the lights today, and I'm so excited to pull out our favorite indoor decorations and watch the kids' faces light up!
