Easy Holiday Wreath
Recently, I happened to be in JoAnn's and as I checked out, I found this:

 Beautiful bronze and dusky gold berries on a grapevine wreath.Hmmm. How about making a wreath which will transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas?










I found this dark celery wired ribbon edged in gold and fashioned bows with long tails. Here's how to make bows (yes!!! you can do this!!!):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS7hK9dau50

















On the back of the wreath is a loop. I looped a plain ribbon through and knotted the desired length. Note: I have a nail on the back of each door specifically for hanging wreaths.
And here's the finished one. Because I use wire to make my bows, I tied the wired bow on the ribbon for hanging. I combined the two tails into one and passed it through the opening, pinning it together. I left the tails because I may want to fasten the bow to the wreath and hot glue the tails in a fancy way.
