Last week I looked around for a wreath but was quite annoyed about the costs. 12,50 Euros for a small wreath built on a ring of straw or styrofoam - are they serious???
I decided to make my own using whatever evergreen shrub my garden is providing at this time of the year. So I went and cut some cypress, hollies, boxwood, mahonia and juniper. The center of the wreath is made of some wisteria wood which can be easily tied to a ring. I simply attached the other greens with thin gardening wire, layer by layer. I did not add much ornaments because I like the more natural look the most. I simply took some dried lantern flowers and hydrangea blossoms I used for an autumn decoration (which is now gone) and some small items. I think it is quite ok and it did not cost one cent. I just have to add the candles I am going to buy today.
