Christmas wreath

Reds, deep bronzes, golds, a little greenery and some snow spray.
Detail - lovely glossy apples and deep red berries, artificial Christmas tree pieces with snow spray.

I've really gotten into making wreaths, and this year's is themed red and gold (above). Last year was silver and blue (below).

This bow is some kind of transparent PVC, wired - very strange stuff I'd never seen before!
I found a wonderful floristry wholesalers, and just adore these glittered pears etc. If you're making a fake wreath, just go for it!
I've mixed in Christmas ornaments, glittered leaves, pieces of artificial Christmas tree - thank goodness for hot glue guns!

I've also been looking online, and found some wonderful Christmas quotes at Quotegarden, and one that refers (a bit) to wreaths in a general way.

We ring the bells and we raise the strain
We hang up garlands everywhere
And bid the tapers twinkle fair,
And feast and frolic - and then we go
Back to the same old lives again.
~Susan Coolidge

And Pinterest has some wonderful wreaths, so do go and look and find one that inspires you - they aren't hard to make, and they look wonderful! Happy Dot Mom does a great coffee wreath tutorial which looks easy and also great fun...

Deck the halls with boughs of holly ... fake or real, it all looks great!
