Wreath Tutorials From Cottage and Vine

Tuesday, November 19, 2013


I've made a lot of wreaths over the last few years and thought it might be helpful to share a round-up post for a quick reference.  Some of the pictures date back and aren't the best, but my hope is that they are at least helpful.  If you happen to have access to evergreens, wreath making is super easy.  Of course, so is buying a wreath, but I rather enjoy the tradition of making my own. Let me know if you have questions - happy to help.








P.S.  Mom, thank you for sharing your wreath making knowledge with me!

  5. I'm still so in love with your pinecone wreath with that wide silk ribbon, even all this time later!

  6. So pretty - the boxwoods are my favorite. I use lots of evergreen boughs around the house, but always take the easy way out with the wreaths. :)

  12. I'd love to try to make my own wreath at some point. We actually have a really pretty pine at our new house and I've been thinking about cutting some branches to use on our fireplace mantel. Isn't it funny the things we think about cutting or gathering outside to enhance the inside of our house? :)
