I already had a twiggy wreath that has served me well in many capacities for the last 9 years. Most recently, it has been my spring wreath. I like the wildness of it, but for the Christmas wreath, I wanted to tame it a little. Plus the branches stick out so much they grab at people’s hair and poke at their eyes when it’s hanging on the front door. So I gave it a trim.
I bought some berry things at Michaels (pretty much everything Christmas is 1/2 off), and then cut them into individual picks with wire cutters. Don’t be boxed in by what you see on the surface; always be thinking “how can I make this work for what I need?”.
After this I didn’t take any photos. Bad blogger. But I just tucked the picks in around the wreath and hot glued. I also added silver ornaments.
I like it. I’ve never hot-glued anything to it before, I’ve always been able to easily change it out for the next idea or season. I hope I’m not going to be sorry about that later. But for now, it’s good.
More Thrifty Gifty coming up this week, and the PB, RH, BD Knock-Off Party is this Friday!
