I love them! :)

Marion

This totally inspired me to make a wreath, too. I have some greenns here and an old wreath base from last year. :-)

Pamela

WONDERFUL job on these, I bet they smell so wonderful!! :)

Jessica

Beautiful! This has inspired me to try to make my own wreath this year instead of buying one from our farmer's market. Thank you!

Loppran

Lovely! Thank you for the inspiration.

Karen

I love how naturally beautiful your wreaths are without lots of added embellishments. I also love the window in your front door! How did you engrave your name on it? It is a wonderfully welcoming window.

karen

The wreaths look great! maybe I'll try one this weekend (between coveted knitting time) And projects with a cat helper - always the best :^)

Ksenia in Canada

Simple. Pretty.

The holiday season starts in December as far as I'm concerned, so I'm filing this idea away ;-).

Libby

Just beautiful. So wish we had suitable trees so I could try making my own wreath. But being Summer here in Australia I'm not sure how it would hold up anyway.

They look great! I also love your windowbox. :)

Martha

Those are beautiful!

Tessa

I've never made a wreath before. Can you tell me how you tie the greenery to the base? Is there a technique?

Danyelle

I really love these! Once again, you have inspired me!

carol

Beautiful wreaths, Benita. Martha Stewart would be proud!

Anna - Balkongliv

Oh, I think I have some kind of fetisch for wreaths... ;-) Yours are gorgeous! I love that they are all green, very stylish. I really should get around to make my own. I even have the cats to help me - a necessity, obviously. ;-)

Petra from the Netherlands

I agree with all of the above; yes, lush green wreaths without too much fuss, great!

Ibabe

Beautiful, a bit of green with all that snow. Here snowed yesterday, but it is not cold enough and it was gone in a few minutes.
Keep on giving us Christmas deco ideas.
Thanks.

Glad you like them :)

Pamela, as I was making them I was thinking I wished you all could smell it :)

Ksenia, over here we celebrate first of Advent on Sunday which sort of starts off our holiday decorating. I'm always ahead on this though as I love all the decorating before the holidays but am also one of the first to take everything down after...

Karen and Wendy, I'll do that.

Tessa, I started off by tying the wire around the wreath once and securing by twisting the wire. Then took a few sprigs of greenery at a time, laid against the base and pulled the wire tight, added more sprigs, pulled tight, etc. The wire I had was on a small spool so I went through the hole in the breath base with the whole spool which also gave me something solid to hold on to and pull. I went all around the wreath like this and held the wite taught all the time and at the end I clipped the wire and twisted the ends together with the ends of the wire where I started out. The tricky part is to hold everything taught all the time so it doesn't unravel.

christy

Benita ~ Chez Larsson

Linda

That is beautiful. Very fitting of the season, it fits so well with the snow etc.
