The wreath I am featuring today can be made by anyone with a gorgeous mature white birch tree in their yard. This on is fairly large in size, but depending on the size branches you cut, a smaller one can be made. This takes minutes to create. First cut about 5 or 6 branches. Not thick ones, thin ones with a base of about 1" round. Make sure there is enough at the top that is weepy (which birches tend to be). Divide the branches up in each hand and bring togethar and wire. You can use any wire or florist wire if you have some. You have formed the bottom point of the heart. Now go to the top and bring the bunch you have in each hand togethar and wire the top weepy part. Be sure to leave some of the branches hanging below the wire, now wire togethar. Leave a long string of wire hanging down. Now pull the string of wire down towards the point of the heart and wire to the point of the branches. This forms your heart shape. You can also wire the sides of the heart if they seem too fat or bulgy. Now decorate to your hearts content. LOL. You can use a combination of silks and drieds as I have done on this wreath. This was created for Ruth Welter for her home. She is an extremely talented artist and has a web site called Artful Creations. You can visit her site at http://www.artfulcreations.biz/ and take a look at her work. She paints mailboxes, old windows, and does beautiful watercolors. I highly recommend her.
