Some of these berry wreaths have very high dollar price tags. Here is my version made from Dollar Tree Berry Picks.
I saw this done on the internet and wanted to give it a try myself. I think every wreath a person does is different and unique. I could not make this exact wreath again if I HAD to.
I have to say that I AM NOT an experienced wreath maker. Years and years ago, I made a lot of grapevine wreaths. They were so popular once upon a time. (maybe it was the 80’s?)
I have a fast paced, time lapsed video you can watch on my Facebook Page. Here is the link.
I do think this wreath turned out really cute.
Here are some of the supplies I used to make the wreath. Below are some pictures of the berry picks from Dollar Tree
I used the larger embroidery hoop to make this wreath. I wasn’t sure if I had enough berries to go around the large one. But I did.
My base for the wreath was an embroidery hoop. First thing I did was wrap the whole hoop with the green floral tape.
I used the tape to also tape the stems onto the hoop. Hot glue would have been too lumpy and would not have been attractive. Even though I used it later to add the optional berries and pinecones on.
I added the greenery around the hoop and between the berry clusters.
It didn’t seem quite finished yet. It needed something. So I added some pinecones and more of the optional berries I had on hand. I think they came from Hobby Lobby.
