My "Out of the box" wreathDecember 6th, 2009 in member junk
I wanted a wreath that would be out of the box and a little different. I started with a piece of garden fence. It was cut down to only the scalloped part. It was then formed into a circle and the fence post parts were pushed down (they were sharp). This made for a almost circle looking form. A old metal dust pan had two holes drilled at the top for wiring to the wreath form. The dust pan was first filled with moss, then pine or greens. I added an artificial spray piece. I also added a antique picture of a boy with his skis. The last part was using hot glue to add a faux birds nest and bird. I added the words Merry Christmas on the dust pan. I really like how it turned out! You can check out my blog for other inspirational, fun ideas!
