I call these "Good, Better, and Best."
GoodHere's the one I showed you in the tutorial posted a few days. Scroll down to the previous post for the how-tos and a different version of this idea.
BetterHere's the second version with more greens and another spray of poinsettia. Now it has better balance! I just tucked the pieces in behind the ones already "tied" to the skate and anchored the new ones to the old with a green twist tie. Much better!
BestAnd finally, I added the wreath behind the skate, "tying" the skate to the wreath with another twist tie. I used another long twist tie to fashion a hanging loop on the back. I think this is the best--with lots more presence on our front door!
What do you think? Actually, I'm happy with either Better or Best!
Hope you're not too cold--it is frigid here in Washington state--unusually so. BRRR. Reminds me of living in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Maine. I'll take rain over this, to be sure!
Wishing you happy holiday preparations!
