Wreath

Do you remember this wreath stand I got for half price at the gift shop that was going out of business? I wanted a dried hydrangea wreath to hang on it. I found a grapevine wreath I didn't need and hot glued green Spanish moss to it, covering most of the grapevines.Then I took some hydrangea I had dried last year. I broke the large hydrangea into smaller pieces and glued them to the moss. I liked the green blooms and the cream and burgundy ones both so I alternated them in groups of 2 or 3 depending on the size.
In a very short time I had a finished wreath.
I love the color variations and it's perfect on the stand.
It fits nicely in my mantle piece with the little rocker. Best of all it only cost the price of the Spanish moss, which was a couple dollars.

That's a mighty handsome wreath you've got there -- looks like a million bucks to me.

And that sweet puppy down there, a post or two ago -- oh, such a snuggly puppy!!

That wreath hanger is a find, very cool! And I bet the lovely hydrangea wreath is only the first of the many creations you'll make for it!

Very cool Jean...did you grow the hydrangeas, too? Great idea and it looks wonderful on that wreath stand. I wanted to put something like that near our fireplace, but it would never last around 2 kitties!!
