Wreaths of the Heartland
It's hard to put a lake (much less 10,000) on a wreath, so we turned to Minnesota's north woods for inspiration. The state is home to the nation's largest jack pine, red pine and white spruce trees, and has the most recreational watercraft and sales of fishing licenses per capita.
To make this wreath: Attach wooden fish ornaments and fishing bobbers with florist's wire to a premade evergreen wreath (ours was 16 inches wide). If you can find a pair of real or fake antlers, attach them with wire at the bottom of the wreath. Make a plaid flannel bow that's proportionate to the size of your wreath, and attach it with florist's wire.
