This year’s holiday wreath is silver and red, inspired by the number of silk poinsettias in the stash. I have spools of wire edged ribbon and making big bows is very easy with it. I have a tutorial on making big bows HERE. Knowing I wanted a good size bow, I started with that.
Attaching it to the grapevine base, I began adding poinsettia blooms on both sides.
I had bunches of both red and white flowers, so I arranged them in a candy cane manner, with stripes of red and white.
I thought I’d stop about halfway down, but it just seemed to want more.
So I kept going with more flowers all around. Over the top I added a silver star wire garland, wrapping it around the outside of the flowers loosely. I delivered it to the Festival of Wreaths last week.
If you are local, the charity silent auction Festival of Wreaths benefiting Meals on Wheels is tomorrow, December 4 from 4-6 pm at the Lodge at Mills River, 5593 Old Haywood Road, Mills River, NC, 28759. They had quite a few when I delivered mine, and more were coming in this past week.
I like the look of this one, with the wide mesh. Next time I’m going to try that.
Have you hung a holiday wreath this year?
