Holiday Wreath

This year I really mixed it up.  Normally I like a naturalistic wreath for the fireplace, like the one I created last year.  Very pretty and soothing, but this year I wanted something different. I guess you’d say the wreath below is fanciful rather than natural. (The glitter and peacocks tends to give that away!)FullSizeRender

Last year’s wreath was about saving money. This year it’s all about color and sizzle.  We’re having a long stretch of dreary, foggy weather that’s unusually warm and drab for zone 4b in December.  We needed zing. And now we have it.IMG_4021

The picks with the glittery balls on the end were on sale and I used the remaining turquoise ribbon for the Christmas tree.  So I was reasonably economical, if not exactly as frugal as last year when I foraged in my own garden for decorations.  But the picks are all reusable, so if we have another dreary December next year, I’ll have that going for me!

    I love your colorful wreath with the peacocks. It looks as though their tails go all the way down the way you created it.
