Repurposing Your Lavender Wreath for Fall

If you bought one of our lavender wreaths this year (or last year, or the year before!) and just sort of have it hanging around looking boring, it's time to change it up a little! And really, it couldn't be easier. Um...just add a ribbon. Like this...






















Of course, lavender comes in many different shades. This happens to be made of Fat Spike Grosso, which turns a lighter, greyish lavender when it dries. It's so neutral you can change it with the seasons. I like bright green for Christmas, yellow for spring, and white for summer.

To get the most life out of your lavender wreath hang it inside, or in an area protected from the elements. Sunlight will cause it to fade. Our wreaths are always untreated, but you can spray them with dried flower preservative or plain old hairspray as a fixative. You can't really dust them, but you can usually just blow the dust off as needed.

I just love purple and orange together for Halloween, don't you!?
