Honeysuckle, and therefore butterflies, are prolific at my house this time of year. When I was walking the trashcan down to the curb the other day I was inspired to create a wreath with the smelling honeysuckle that lines my drive. I had made one years ago, but unfortunately hadn't tackled it recently, I broke out with intense poison ivy after that experience. My husband made the form out of wire and zip ties. My son and I trimmed some branches with some clippers, and I had a knotted up spool of thin wire in the junk drawer.
I wired my first branch to the base, then continued adding branches. I overlapped my branches as I added them, only focusing on wiring the base of each branch as I went.
When I had made a complete circle with my additions, I took the wire and just wrapped it around the wreath to contain all the wild off shoots.
Here is my finished project! What do you think?I don't remember how it looks as it dries, but I will take a couple shots in a couple weeks and post back. Keep your fingers crossed that I don't break out with poison ivy, haha.
