So sure, I could have stopped at the Square Christmas Wreath. But I didn’t.
I didn’t stop at the square wreath because I am a rebel the likes of which you have never seen. I run with scissors, use Canadian coins in American parking meters and drink almost expired milk. I am rebel, hear me pour.
Using the same materials and methods I used for the Square Christmas Wreath made out of plumbing pipe, I created this wreath. It’s not circular, it’s not square. It’s a rectal wreath. No. Rectangular is the word I was looking for. It’s a rectangular wreath.
I put it together out of old stuff my niece was going to throw out. My niece throws a lot of things out. She certainly isn’t a hoarder. She’s a part of the lesser known subcategory of mental illnesses. She’s a Chucker. Don’t ever give her presents. In one of her frequent mad fits she will chuck it. Many a thing has been chucked from her basement, drawers and garage. On more than one occasion I’ve seen her open up her closet only to stare into it, rapidly blinking, realizing she’s chucked all but one pair of jeans. Blink, blink.
So before she had a chance to ditch all of her old Christmas garland, pinecones and lights I grabbed the box and ran home with it. Along with a pair of slightly used Sevens.
In making this wreath, the only change I made was the length of the plastic pipes, AND I used some PVC cement at the joints. With such a big wreath, it’s a lot heavier and more prone to falling apart. (the pipes slip out of the elbows) Other than that, you make it exactly the same!
I hung the wreath on my front door for photographic purposes, but it is now hanging proudly on her front door. Where it will delight the neighbours and warm people’s hearts. Until she decides to chuck it.
