Make Your Own Christmas Wreath This Year!

Have you ever wanted to make your own wreath? My sister makes them and gives them out as gifts - and I was the recipient of just such a wreath over Thanksgiving!! She makes them out of completely natural materials from around her yard and neighborhood. Click here to check her and all her ideas out. She starts with pliable branches such as grape vines ::

She bends it into a circle and affixes it with twine and then begins covering the branches with dried lily leaves. She wraps them around in bunches and ties them off. After you have the basic wreath you can decorate it anyway you want. The same wreath can be used all year with different decorations for different seasons. It makes for a elegant and natural way to decorate! And if you can find it around your yard - it's free!
