Weekend Wreath Making

We got our Christmas tree this weekend and I always hate to waste all the boughs that I have to cut off the bottom of the tree to fit it into our stand. For several years, I have been making our own front door wreath with these leftover branches. This year, the place where we got our tree was also giving away excess boughs to those asking. I picked up a few extra branches and using floral wire, saved ribbons, pine cones from the yard and a recycled wreath form, I made this for our front door. It might be a little more rustic than what you might buy, but it took all of a half hour to make and cost nothing.  More photos and a rundown of the process can be seen on Artwife Needs A Life
