How to beef up a wreath

I was wanting a greenery wreath for my front door so I could just add flowers to it for the changing seasons.  I wasn't able to find anything that I liked at the local stores so I was looking in a catalog and found one that looked like it would be perfect.  It looked nice and full in the picture so I ordered it.  Well needless to say that when it arrived and I took it out of the box I was a little disappointed.  It did not look as full as it did in the picture.  Since I didn't want to return it I decided to "beef it up".

The before wreath is on the left and the after on the right.


Here is a full door shot of the before wreath.


Now the after shot.



This looks much better on my door.  It fills up the space much better now.  All I did was add more greenery that I already had.  Of course I know that most people don't have as much as I do.  I used greenery every where in my home plus I have lots of extra in bags and boxes.   My hubby calls me the Queen of Greenery.

So now I just had to add some tulips since it sure has been feeling like Spring here lately.  I even see some bulbs coming out of the ground.






Looks much better with some flowers on it.  Now if I can just get the porch cleaned up so I can try and get it decorated.

    1. Thanks Stacey. It fits much better on my door now. All I did was tuck in the tulips here and there. It will be easy to change out the flowers when I feel like it. Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thank you Jann. I am always buying different greenery whenever I can so I always some on hand just in case. I still have a large black trash bag full that I haven't used in the house yet.
