Purple comes back for the holidays - DIY wreath
The result was okay, but a little sparse. I added more from the back to fill it out. At right is the first round of stem attachments.
A couple of weeks ago I'd visited Michael's and found some fancy glittery pieces to spruce up a plain wreath, but after working so hard with all the real greenery, I was concerned it would make it too gaudy. But it certainly needed something...
When I moved into my first apartment in 1973 and decorated my very first Christmas tree, I used lots of purple. But it was the '70s, and weird colors were the norm. All of a sudden, it seems, when I wasn't looking, purple has made a comeback. Not a traditional Christmas color to be sure, but I'm kind of liking it as much now as I did when I was 20.
What do you think?
