Honeysuckle Wreath

To say I have a little honeysuckle growing around the house would be an understatement. Some people find it to be a nusance. I admit it does tend to take over and spread like wildfire. I just can't help but love it though. Every time I go outside I smell the lovely delicate blooms that have come with Spring.  I got to thinking about what I could possibly make with honeysuckle vines.

I cut a bunch of vines. Some of the vines had flowers and some didn't.

I dumped everything on the kitchen table and got to work.

Carefully, I formed a long vine into a circle.

Then I continued to add more vines, weaving them in the wreath....

until the wreath looked full.

I added a simple bow.

Now I can enjoy the fragrant honeysuckle indoors.
