Inspired by photos like this:
I’ve really been wanting to make or buy a fall wreath, preferably with bittersweet. The one below, from the Marston House, is my first pick. They’re built on an 18-inch vine base but the branches can extend 30 inches. Alas, they cost $75 + $20-$25 for shipping&handling, which is a little too much for my budget this year. But aren’t they beautiful?
I next searched Etsy, where I found the option below from seller twoinspireyou. It’s their Hint of Fall Wreath, which is again built on an 18-inch form but can extend to 27 inches. It’s also $75 but shipping is included. Unlike the Marston House wreath, it’s made of faux berries and leaves.
So I have a few options. I could try to find bittersweet vine for sale at a local farmer’s market. There are a few near me but I have no idea if the vendors would sell bittersweet – it is considered worse than a weed, after all. I could also go the faux route and purchase the supplies from a craft supply store. I’m afraid it would look too… faux, though.
What do you think?
