i have made wreaths for most of my adult life...with my mom and sister, with my grandmother, and with my friends. i have made them big and full, or stripped down with just vine and twine. this year, i gathered kudzu vine (about a 4 foot piece) and twisted it into a circle, weaving the ends around and into each other. then, i had some trimmings from our tree as well as some hemlock cuttings from the garden. i tied these into a small bunch with florist's wire, then attached it to one side of the kudzu base. next, i had a few dried things in my studio: pods from a friend, allium from spring's garden, and a twist of curly willow. i tucked these in or wired them first and tied them to the base. then, i hung the wreath using some vintage rosey-pink velvet ribbon that i had saved off of a garment years ago. super simple...and super perfect. enjoy.
