The Wreath

I normally don’t make wreaths. Not even for my front door. When a friend and I tried to make gathered burlap wreaths years ago and my finished product looked like Quasi Moto was stuffed inside, I came to terms that wreath making wasn’t my thing. Some things you should just buy. If you’re looking for insanely beautiful, glorious wreaths, I recommend getting one from Heather Knoll Designs (http://etsy.com/shop/HeatherKnollDesigns).

BUT.  When you’ve been looking at nine wooden rings in your shop for months now, and you suck at hula hooping, it’s time to create what makes the most sense out of them. A wreath!

Simple. Rustic. If you want a piece of history hanging from your door, then these may be speaking to you.

One of the prohibition barrels I acquired last year had these really cool wooden rings around it. They are delicate. (If you were 100 years old, you’d be, too.)  Each wreath is made from three wooden rings and elements from nature: ivy, moss, and twigs. One has grapes and ivy. A small piece of wire completes the piece to hang the wreath in your location of choice.

The three pictured are available for purchase. Add your own splash of color with flowers throughout spring and summer!

And now, back to working with pallets.

The Wreath: $30 each
