Winter Medallions

Winter Horticulture 2007! I finished the medallion for my front door today. It looks very dramatic from the street and is way more interesting than a typical wreath. I built it on a styrofoam disc and used greening pins to keep the fresh evergreens, silk larkspur & wild blueberries in place. The focal point is a flowering kale surrounded by fresh juniper with it's signature dusty blue berries. Check out my Nov 4th post to read about how I first came to love winter medallions.

This wreath is simply stunning! Oh, how I wish I could see it in person. Your front door must be the envy of the cul-de-sac! Keep inspiring us with your wonderful ideas.

Thanks, Kerry. When I was shopping for the "bones" of this wreath, I had such pretty items in my cart at Michaels that another customer stopped me and asked me what I was making! I knew then that I was on the right track...
