I love burgundy - especially when used in Christmas decorating. To me, burgundy Christmas decorations always seem like they're from another century. I don't know why... feels to me like a colour from bygone days somehow.
I've been searching for a Christmas wreath that I liked but I didn't like any of the prices, so I decided to make my own. I had these grapevine wreaths and a box of glittered fruit in my stash of Christmas decorations and I bought a roll of canvas ribbon with sequins along the edges.
Some cinnamon pine cones, cinnamon sticks and a ribbon from a Poinsettia I bought last Christmas and voilà! A simple wreath in lime green and burgundy that turned out much better than expected. Don't you love it when that happens??
22 days til Christmas!
