Every year some of our trees need to be trimmed just a bit. I always wait until just before Christmas to do it, so that I can make beautiful wreaths and swags with the "waste."
The last two years I've sold my wreaths,but, not this year. People are having a hard enough time with the economy without adding more that they have to buy this Christmas. This year I'm giving them away to friends and family as gifts.
The only thing in this that is not natural is the 26 gauge wire and the dollar store cranberries.

Looks excellent and what a thoughtful gift!  If it weren't so freezing right now I would go out and cut me some branches (maybe tomorrow!).  Thanks!

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

Pretty!  This gives me an idea of what to do with the rosemary bush in my yard I've been needing to trim down.... Thanks for sharing this!

Oh! That's a great idea. It would smell so good as it's drying and a long time afterwards. You could do a wreath for the kitchen, or bathroom.

I made a little one out of my rosemary  Cheesy



Nothing too fancy but it smells nice.  Don't mind that bit on the left side - it grew an arm  Roll Eyes
