OK, so I am cheating. I have not prepared a vase, and the holiday season is over, but I still wanted to share a simple wreath that I threw together just before Christmas.
Inspired by the other wreaths in IAVOM posts, I decided to wrap together some parthenocissus tricuspidata vines that had started to take over the front of our house. These twisted together suprisingly well because they are quite small in diameter and flexible ‒ no tying necessary. We don't have fir trees here in LaMancha, so the greenery I added is rosmarinus postrata, and the red hips are from rosa canina rootstock that grew after transplanting a rosebush.
I like the simple asymmetrical look with our old-fashioned Toledo oak door. And, I am happy to find that, two weeks later, the rosemary has not dropped is "needles". Of course, the door is north-facing, so I would not recommend it for a south-facing door.
