A DIY Wreath From the Garden

With spring quickly approaching, it's time to get outdoors and get inspired with the color around! We originally made this wreath with Christmas in mind, but that doesn't mean we can't take the same principles and create a spring-fabulous wreath. The possibilities are endless...time to get Zesty!
The supplies are simple.  I used a wire wreath form, but really any circular structure would work.  I actually salvaged the form from an old, fake greenery wreath that was doomed for the dumpster.  The only other things needed are wire and whatever greenery you have on hand.  Lucky for me, my nandina was full of gorgeous berries.  So, I decided to ditch most of the greenery and go for an all berry wreath with varied hues of the ripening berries.
Simply layer the greenery/berries going in one direction, while you secure by wrapping the wire around both the frame and the greenery.
This process goes so quick.  So, if you are looking for a satisfying project that makes you feel like a craft-master, this is it!
Just beautiful!
Loving the color and texture... post your pics we would love to see!!

    How long do the berries last before they start dropping? Or do they dry and still look nice?

    Is there a spay on preservative or a poly coating of some kind to keep it fresh looking. So pretty!

    For your information, Nandina is native to Japan and China, also known as Heavenly Bamboo. It is highly toxic and produces cyanide and other alkaloids contained in the berries that produce highly toxic hydrogen cyanide, which is extremely poisonous to all animals. If you have this type of bush, please pick all berries off the bush and those lying on the ground. If used in floral arrangement, coat with a spray on sealer.... ;) It's a beautiful wreath by the way! ;)
