I decided I wanted some kind of bead or berry wreath for the wreath stand in my dining room. I looked when I was in Erie and they were 30 to 40 dollars! No way I'm paying that much. Most of them had a grapevine base so I decided to try to make one. I got all I needed for less than $15.
I pulled apart the icy branches and hot glued them to the wreath. Then I just stuck the berry sprays into the wreath and bent the stems around the wreath. I used 10 sprays,
I didn't even cut or glue the sprays so if I decide I want to do something else with them I can.
I like the glass look beads with the berries.

I'm very happy with the way it turned out and with the price!
