Welcome in Fall with Bittersweet Vines & Berries for your Front Porch

Holidays 11.23.13
This simple swag wreath took just minutes to make. All you need are a few bittersweet vines and berries and some twine. That's it! So simple, so sweet - bursting with autumn color! Bittersweet vines and berries are a warm welcome for any front door this fall.

Added note: Bittersweet stains very easily, so be careful when using them. I also learned that Bittersweet is very invasive and should be discarded in a sealed plastic bag. Here is a great article on Bittersweet, about it's beauty and invasive nature - http://www.yankeemagazine.com/home/garden/b...

    Do you have problems with the berries staining the door or the vines scratching?

    Bittersweet is certainly autumnal, but it is also wildly invasive, so please throw your swag away in a plastic bag when the time comes to change decor.

    Douglas - good to know! I was hoping to save these for next year, but when I do throw them out, I will be sure to place them in a plastic bag.
