My dear daughters decided last Christmas that my house looked great decorated, EXCEPT that it needed a wreath above the mantle to replace the picture hanging there. No problem, thinks I, and off I go to Michael's for supplies. I had seen a great wreath in a Pottery Barn catalog that I felt confident I could copy. The result, however, was less than spectacular, and one of my daughters decided it would definitely win in an ugly wreath contest. My sister thought that it was a little unsettling, because she felt the ribbon sort of looked like a nazi symbol....not exactly the look I was hoping for! So, back to the drawing board, and what I ended up with it fine....not Pattery Barn, but fine.
