This weekend I finished my Christmas decorating. I strung our lights on the outside of our house and put together this wreath for our front door. It's pretty lopsided, but I like it like that. I like the disorganized, haphazard look of it.
When the husband was trimming the bottom branches off of our tree, I asked him to toss them on the front porch so I could put them on a wreath.
I just cut the big branches into manageable pieces and wired them together.
Then I used the wire to secure them to the form
I overlapped each piece, securing each bundle all the way around the wreath. Doons suggested that I trimmed the longer stems to make the wreath look synchronized, but I didn't want stubs sticking out around it - I wanted the stems and branches to have their natural ends. I guess next year I could plan a little bit better to make it look a bit better, but I still like it.
