Wreath of the Day – The Birds Had It

Sometimes a beautifully decorated wreath leaves the workshop for delivery and disaster strikes.  In one particular instance this year, the delivery crew was about to hang a wreath on a nail outdoors, at the customer’s request, when a bird flew over and deposited a gift – a large gift – smack dab in the middle of the ribbon.  The ribbon was velvet, and no amount of cleaning would have sufficed.  So back came the wreath for a new bow.  The wreath pictured below was not the one described, but we discovered that this lovely red satin ribbon was unsuitable for outdoor use, since water would stain the fabric, so we used it only in indoor conditions.  No birds will get to this one!
