Make an Easter Willow Wreath

Posted on April 18, 2011 at 7:50 AM



At the Bytown market yesterday afternoon I spotted my favourite vendor selling willow (Salix discolor) branches and, of course, I couldn't resist buying a few. I sometimes just plunk them into one of my old sap buckets and leave it at that. But this year I wanted to create a nice wreath to remind me that spring is not too far away. 



To make the wreath, I simply recycled a twig wreath that I had left over from Christmas and inserted short stems of the willow between the twigs. The wreath will last a long time but keep it out of the sun.

Thanks for your support, Hope. The little jug is actually an antique pickle crock that I've had for ages.
