Hot Trend: Mini Wreaths!

Want to thank your guests for making the season bright? Give each of them a simple-to-make yet elegant mini-wreath! For a circular wreath you visit your local craft store to find an assortment of small grape vine or foam bases, or you can cut your own pattern such as a star out of heavy card board or foam board. Once you have your base the possibilities are endless! You can use heavy gauge chenille or other funky yarn to wrap the form and then decorate with your own personal touches. Other options you might try are covering the form with berries, eucalyptus leaves, or even bird seed! These small wreaths can be hung on interior doors, looped over door knobs, used as a candle surround, or even placed outside in a sheltered area depending on the base and purpose.
