I don’t know who to give credit to for this idea.
All I know is it started when I fell in love with a small round walnut frame.
I put a bow on it and it went on the wall.
Then I remembered, my front door has a storm door. This can make hanging up a big fluffy wreath difficult.
I then found a beautiful real wood oval frame. Throw on a bow and a small garland from Michaels, and voila. Flat wreath.
Since then I have been looking for more real wood oval and round frames.
The white one had a mirror in it. I paid $8, and took the mirror out.
A few dollars more in garland and bow, and I have a wreath that can sit on the mantle.
This may be changed over to a non holiday wreath, just by changing the bow, once the holidays are over.
I won’t toss out anything wonderful from an oval frame. My price limit is $10 for a frame. The circle one is very old and the work of a wonderful craftsperson. But a modern plastic frame would also look nice. I’m just saying that often vintage is cheaper than new.
I also finally get the “hanging empty frames on the wall” thing.
For a flat wreath, or an indoor one the cat may not eat, this works perfectly.
