She wore a wreath of roses,
The night that first we met.
Thomas Haynes Bayly

This past weekend, in edition to the painting, my mom and I put together two wreaths for the front doors of the church at the wedding. We'd been collecting silk flowers for a few months or so from thrift stores, sales at Michael's and other random finds. Looking around I just wasn't seeing wreaths I liked at the stores and certainly wasn't going to pay $200 a pop from our florist.

It was so easy to weave our flower collection into the grape vine wreaths so they matched:

And voila, a beautiful wreath for just pennies compared to what we would have paid for a pre-made one:

I can't wait to see them hanging beautifully on our wedding day!
