I never find wreaths that I love, because the classic green ones are a little too traditional, but then the ~alternative~ ones are always a really specific look, and never one that fits with whatever decorating style it is that I'm going for, so I usually skip the wreath. However, as I was putting up decorations this week, I had two holly garlands that never found a home, and a boa I bought to make little trees like this:
But as I was looking up some good diy tips for it, I was finding that even really great bloggers and crafters were ending up with really mange-y looking feather trees, not pretty ones like this, so I tabled that idea.
Anyways, cheap garland (like mine, from the Dollar Tree) is hella wirey and pliable. It will bend to your every whim. So I just twisted two 24-inch garlands into a circle and then wove the boa haphazardly into the gaps until it looked good. Real scientific. The boa was $3, and each strand was $1, so this little wreath of neglected decor came in at $5 and met my Christmas requirements of Traditional meets RuPaul.
