I love wreaths! There is something about putting together a lot of smaller items, to make one big thing, that I really enjoy.
I started off with some giant pine cones, a plain base for the wreath and a glue gun.
Repetition can be beautiful. Here's what I ended up with:
At first I just had the pine cone wreath on it's own, but later realized I wanted the edges to be softer. So, I simply added the garland behind it. That really did the trick.
Here's one more of my Christmas wreaths, just for good measure. You can find the tutorial for the book page banner here.
