For this week's Makeover Monday, I turned my attention to a wreath that had been given to me by my aunt. It had been in her basement for ages and needed a bit of a pick-me-up. During my last trip to a Dollar Tree, I found bunches of berries that I thought were sweet. I bought four bunches and used every bit of them for this wreath. And did I mention that this wreath is Super Simple? It took me all of, oh, I dunno, maybe four minutes to throw together.
- Wreath base
- Berry bunches (4)
- Wire cutters
- Ornament (optional)
I used wire cutters to clip all of the berries apart and sorted them by color. I left a few inches on the stems.

I then jammed the stems into the wreath, alternating colors. After I had made it all around the wreath once, I concentrated several stems at the bottom left side of the wreath. I didn't bother with glue or floral wire. The berry stems held in there without it.
I added a star ornament (also from the Dollar Tree that I got at their after Christmas 50% off sale) to the middle of the wreath for a bit of extra sparkle. That part's optional. You could add a bow or a bird ornament or nothing at all. Actually, I think I might like it better without anything except the berries and that star may be going. I'll have to sleep on that one.
