wreath

 

Save money on wreaths by using one basic wreath and decorating it differently for the holidays and seasons. 

 

Grape wreaths are versatile, allowing you to tie decorations on them, wrap ribbon around the branches, or attach other embellishments that can be easily removed and replaced at the end and start of each holiday or special occasion.  Save your trims and embellishments, and use, recycle, and repurpose them.
