Making a vintage wreath more vintage!

I recently found a very squashed 1960s/70s vintage wreath in a local junk shop. Once spruced up I felt it needed more vintage-ness added to it to make it look its best. This is something you could even do with a modern wreath as it is so simple and easy to do – it’s a […] Read more…
