I was surprised when attending my favorite home show to see a green artificial wreath hanging on the front door of a BEAUTIFUL home. It’s only adornment, a piece of blue ribbon. This wreath was very green and VERY artificial, and VERY pretty. In fact we stopped and did a double-take. (Sorry for the poor picture quality)
Wreaths can be very pricey to buy! I NEVER buy a wreath, except a grapevine wreath for the foundation. Even making wreaths can be expensive. The trick is to purchase enough stuff for a wreath and then have another use for your leftovers. I find that to make a floral type wreath I must plan on spending around $60, but I always have enough left over to almost make another one. Go shopping with a friend and split the materials, and the cost.
TIP: If this wreath will be hanging outside in inclement weather use less expensive flowers and greenery. Wal-Mart carries a large variety of artificial flowers and, choosing carefully, you can put together a beautiful Spring wreath for…..not much. Add some grassy stuff and maybe some pods from some tired potpourri and you’ve got yourself a great wreath!
