I'm going for a more neutral holiday color palette - linens and blacks and whites with greenery. SO this is my wreath. First time ever making one. I got some garland on Factory Direct Crafts and intertwined two pieces to make it more full and used some floral wire to connect. I watched a tutorial from heather and My Mini Front Porch on her stories on IG to make the bow. Got the ribbon from Etsy. Pine cones from eBay. Voila!

Very nice!

It's hard to find pine cones in the right size for 1:12. I learned that the smallest pine cones are from a hemlock tree, so for anyone who can't find tiny pine cones locally, searching for 'hemlock pine cones' on Etsy or eBay can lead you to some good ones.

ahhh, I got these as Elderberry ones someone told me about to get on Ebay. But will look for those - I am finding I have to pick through for small ones.
