 So I needed to make a holiday housewarming gift for a party and I had about -2 hours of free time to do it. I chose to make a wreath, as I already had some of the necessary greenery around my house i.e. a juniper bush.

 I also tucked in some rosemary and a few boughs of cedar swag I bought. I made a test one for myself, of course :c)

for housewarming, with knitted holly leaves and berries

for my own door, with nerdy plaid bow tie (looks like the absentminded professor wreath to me!)

After the photos, I trimmed some of the unruly branches and added some red berries couldn't find any holly though.
 Anyways, some people have made fantastic wreaths here but I still wanted to show my little guys. If I had more time I would have made them more even looking. Still, a good evening project!

I think they are lovely. I too am going to raid some trees for some long-lasting greenery. Although here in Australia it's summer so I'm going for the gum tree and eucalypt wreath  Wink

See...this is the spirit of crafting! Using your inventive mind to come up with quick and extremely workable solutions.
I love these, and I love that they came from your yard and in a pinch! They look beautiful.

Your wreath is so gorgeous!  I am in love with the "absent-minded professor" bow too!
This wreath reminds me of the 70's decorations from my early childhood.  Great job!  So beautiful, I would love to know if you used a form?
