I have them all over my house during the winter season and I have always wanted a winter berry wreath, but haven't wanted to spend a lot for it.
After Christmas, I went to my local arts and crafts store and found some red berry garland 80% off. It looked pretty chincy, with cheap bits of holly and pine cones randomly stuck all over. I could see why nobody had purchased it.
There were lots of those glorious red berries! I couldn't pass it up. And for about $6 for each 6-foot strand, it was pretty much a bargain.
I love making wreaths and thought that this homely little garland might be perfect, so I bought two strands. I cut out all of the cheap holly bits and pine cones, leaving only the berries behind. Then I wrapped both strands into a shape/size that fit my door and secured them together with some wire.
