I buy my wreaths at a garage sales.
You can get them cheap, and it is a great way to recycle.
I actually took a picture of two of the "befores"!
I usually end up with a bunch of santas,
(click HERE to see my Santa wreath from last year)
maybe not all that great by themselves -- but a whole flock
of flocked santas is very appealing.
Add a touch of vintage holly, some recycled poinsettias,
and some great vintage Christmas bulbs.
Notice I kept the original bow?
The grapevine wreath lent itself well to the herd of little carved
wooden camels that I corralled this summer.
And I decided to make this wreath a nativity theme.
The last wreath my husband entitled
"It's Reining Deer".
I used some of my mercury glass Christmas bulbs,
see mercury glass bulb tutorial HERE ,
and little silver beads from a necklace that recently
fell apart. It also got to keep it's original bow.
