“My advice to the women of America is to raise more hell and fewer dahlias.” ~ William Allen White
The last of the dahlias have bloomed.
I wanted to create something special. Something that would not involve a thirty minute ride to the closest store for supplies.
Sitting in the sunshine amidst autumn splendor, I wove the dahlia stems into a grapevine base I created.
It can be used as a wreath.
Or it can be used as a centerpiece.
To water the flowers, just soak the wreath in a sink.
No, it won’t last forever but at no cost it adds priceless beauty to my home.
