Wreaths Tips and Tricks

I wanted to throw a few things out there in case you were wondering or needed a little nudge in profecting that holiday wreath.

ALWAYS buy more then you need. Yes, it may look like you have enough in your hand, but it's not going to stay in your hand, it seems to get smaller once you start decorating the wreath. I always just turned back before I leave the aisle in the store and grab one more.

Use plenty of wire. It's cheap and you can't even see it, if you use it right. I always do a shake test to make sure all more decorations have been secured onto the wreath.

Whether using a greenry base or a dried vine base, get a good one. Make sure it's a nice circle, I have seen so many that are funny shaped and that just will not make the best base for wreath making. I also tend to visit all my local craft shops just for this reason.

And when you think you are finished hang it up and take a step back.

And go ahead and add those few more decorations, even if you think you don't need it. You do.
