All of these wreaths come from the BHG website. This post is a continuation of my last post today (Make Your Own Fall Wreaths: Part I)
and I know that the pictures extend over the post column. I wanted them to be as big as possible so that you could see them good:
or leaf sprays if you can get them cheaply like at The Dollar Store. The square base could be cut from styrofoam. I think that if you made a wire form you wouldn't get the depth like this one, unless they make square forms, I've never seen them.
BHG says that this wreath is one that you can use for Thanksgiving and then change the "harvest style swag" to a "Christmas swag" for Christmas. I would use an artificial evergreen unless you live somewhere that gets really cold and stays cold from November until Christmas, otherwise I think it would get brown. They used dried fruits,unshelled nuts, cinnamon sticks and artificial berry sprays. You could use artificial apples and oranges and just "grubby" the orange with stain or wood tone spray to tone down the "orange".
