It may be hard to tell the difference, but these are actually two different wreaths. The one on the top (left) went home with my sister last weekend (she actually has a "music room," so she needed one!).
I discovered that you can get different cones if you roll them the "long way" versus the "short way." My sister's wreath has a mix, but all the cones are rolled pretty tightly. It made for a large, but flatter wreath.
For the second wreath (the one on the bottom right), I rolled all the cones the "short way," and I tried to leave them a little fuller, so my wreath is a little fatter--not a lot. I am still toying with the idea of cutting some pages of music down by about a third, and then rolling cones from that...I think it would give another dimension.
The wreaths found a temporary home on the front of my china cabinet/bookshelf, but I need an opinion! I just finished repainting a set of red shutters; how do you think the wreath looks on them?
...or... I am in the midst of getting an old window ready to hang (it's painted, but STILL not clean!!)
I know it's hard to get an idea while everything is sitting on the floor, but maybe you have a gut instinct! Or another suggestion??
What do you think?
