I walked into the florist shop last week and asked if they had any myrtle. The lady said, "What is myrtle???" I was confused... A few moments later I was inside her cooler telling her the name of the greenery in it. As I left, the owner of the floral shop said, "Don't go telling people that we don't know what we're doing." I gave a courtesy laugh, and in my head I thought, "You DON'T know what you're doing!"
It was pretty funny, but I came away with some myrtle and I made this wreath for $3.20. I already had the velvet ribbon so that is not included in the cost.
I turned the greenery above into the wreath below.
Honestly, it didn't work how I thought it would, so it was a little more complicated than I thought it would be, but the end result was the same!
p.s. My nine year old called this a "Moaning Myrtle" wreath... Harry Potter anyone?
