Well, I fully intended to get these pictures posted prior to Christmas—they were taken well before..
This is the new wreath I put together. It’s actually a blend of my old wreath with some new stuff. First, I took off all of the red stuff—the berries and the poinsettias. Then I started adding the new stuff . . .
I decided to use a bird theme—I love them and I had an ample supply of resources at the shop!
I recycled the grapevine form,the pine, the mistletoe branches and the bow.
I added the frost-speckled nest and the bird.
The had to work-in these frosted, green rosehips and pheasant feathers. The feathers are faux and wired, therefore much easier to manipulate than the real thing. They’re one of my favorite elements.
Here’s the pile of leftovers. They’re now stored away for a resurrection in a future arrangement.
Sorry I didn’t get this posted in a more timely manner, but I hope it provides you with some inspiration for your own arrangements or wreaths.
Did you recycle any arrangements at your house this Christmas? I’d love to see them—share a link in the comments forms!
Thanks for your indulgence!
