After moving the wreath half way across the country, it is now less full than when it originally arrived at my front door in Fresno. I thought I had packed it quite carefully, but with so many hands involved in loading and unloading the truck, my "fragile" and "this side up" notes got blatantly ignored. I literally cringed when I watched the box get tossed of the truck and carried sideways into the condo. Oh well. So a less-than-full, slightly man-handled wreath is what brought me to this re-purposing project.
I picked up a grapevine wreath last week at Hobby Lobby for $3.00. The Pottery Barn wreath has some great adornments that I clipped off to attach to the new one. Easy project - whole new look. No more sad looking, sparse wreath.

I'm so much happier with the way the new wreath looks. A plus? I have left over flowers and pine cones for another project.
