Day 604's project


Sometime around Christmas, I came across an image from Cottage Living of an oval grapevine wreath covered in bittersweet vines. It was so good-looking, but my bittersweet was long gone and I'd moved on to a Fraser Fir wreath, anyway. But, I thought the oval wreath was such a clever twist, and I've been wanting to do something similar.

A Saturday morning trip to Hobby Lobby yielded exactly what I was looking for. They had oval wreaths, and plenty of (fake) Forsythia branches. For just $19, I bought three branches, the wreath, some 20 gauge floral wire and one branch with green and white flowers, just to mix it up. It took just about ten minutes to wire all of the branches to the wreath, and I love it! Hooray, spring!
