DIY: Holiday Wreath

A few weeks ago I posted a montage of wreaths to inspire me to create a wreath of my own for the holidays.  I found a twig wreath base at Big Lots on clearance for $ I decided to start there.  I began to build off of the rustic style wreath and bought some berry springs and frosty branches from Michaels fake floral section. I also got some unfinished wooden letters to paint.  I simply cut the fake branches and twigs into smaller pieces and tucked them into the wreath using brown wire.  I painted the letters burgundy and hot glued them on top of the fake branches.  So easy! What do ya think?
