This beautiful triangle wreath has a fresh, modern and minimalist feel. You can decorate the triangle with any winter foliage, berries or flowers you like. I foraged mine from the garden and found the rest on a walk. Aromatic plants such as Rosemary and Cedar will welcome your guests with a wonderful wintery scent. To make the triangle, they will usually happily cut it for you with the angles at the Home depot or hardware store. Otherwise you can use a small hand saw. Start to celebrate the holidays with this DIY triangle wreath that is fun and easy to make!
