I can't make a wreath like this for the Garden Club. For one thing, we invariably use bows, and we always try to use a good variety of items for each wreath — but we don't use anything to excess. For my own wreath, I like to do things differently. As usual, I went overboard with pinecones; I love them. And this was such a poor-quality wreath to begin with (chosen in the dark at Wilson Farm) that it really needed to be covered entirely.
Having overdosed on pinecones, I decided to use too many red berries, too. It hangs is a darkish spot so it needs some brightness. We like the result.
