Into the Black Forest is arguably my personal favorite of any of the wreaths I have made this year. I began with the wonderful leaping stag and the vintage elf (top left) and as I started putting things together it morphed into a fairy tale. The stag and the elf are clearly friends. There are nods to the forest: a pine cone corsage on the top and little sprigs of greenery tucked in here and there (that's vintage, too). The color palette is of reds and golds and some touches of rusty orange. The placement of the ornaments accents the motion of the stag and helps create a sense of movement. The ornaments themselves are special: Shiny Brites, Polands, and more. Look closely to see all the details. Swoops of gold beaded garland are the final flourish.
Into the Black Forest measures approx. 16" wide and 20" tall. Comes with a nice storage bag.
INDOOR USE ONLY
A NOTE ABOUT SHIPPING: Unfortunately, shipping charges are astronomical this year (even more so than usual) so be prepared. I carefully pack each piece in an X-Large box with loads of packing material to keep it safe from harm. The larger the box, the more it costs to ship. However, in 11 years of shipping, I have felt it was worth the extra cost to make sure each piece arrrives safely. So far, that caution has played out successfully. My large pieces (wreaths and centerpieces) are shipped via UPS. For more about shipping, please go to the "Policies" page.
THERE IS ALSO AN OPTION FOR CUSTOMER PICK UP. If you live anywhere close to Richmond, VA, you can eliminate the shipping expense altogether by picking up your wreath! Merely tick that option when checking out.
