It is only the day after Thanksgiving, but I’ve been waiting for the beginning of the Christmas season for what seems like months. This morning I made a wreath.
I took a walk in my yard and clipped some Holly, Boxwood, and another evergreen.
I started tucking these clippings to a wooden wreath frame that I had lying around.
I had to trim a few of the branches and leaves before I added them to the wreath so that the whole thing didn’t get out of hand. I didn’t want it to look like a plant explosion.
I kept adding branches until I liked the way it looked.
I think it would also look really nice if all of the branches were going in the same direction.
Truthfully, I don’t know how long this wreath will live for. I’m hoping it will last a few weeks, but we’ll see. I want to make one with all boxwood leaves, but maybe I’ll wait and make sure this wreath doesn’t die right away. I was going to hang this one on my back door, but it’s a little small so it’s hanging out with one of my flame-less candles.
