Faux Lavender Wreath

I don't know what possessed me to do this, but I saw this idea on another blog and I thought, well why not, that looks easy enough. So, I went to Hobby Lobby this afternoon and they had all of their dried flower bushes on sale for 50% off and all their vine type wreaths. So I bought a couple of faux lavender bushes and a wreath. It was fairly easy to do. I just used wire cutters to cut the greenery from the bush and then separated the lavender blossoms from the greenery. Then I put the greenery in the vine in a spiral shape, the same shape as the wreath. Then I put the lavender flowers in the same way. It's kind of funky looking. Some would say it's really dead looking, I guess. Eddie will probably laugh at it. He's at a ballgame right now, so he doesn't even know I made it. I hung it in the kitchen. I like it.

Hi Sharon,

I think you did a great job on that wreath. Looks like you have a knack for it too.

Ooooh~ it's wonderful, Sharon!! I love wreaths of any kind year-round.
And if Eddie is like my hubby, he won't even notice it for a month... hehe
