Taking a quick look over your garden during the chilly winter months, you might think there’s not much to see. But look again. There’s really quite a bit of beauty out there, especially if you bring it indoors.

All those dried seedpods, sweet gum pods, rose hips, flower heads, berries, acorns, ornamental grasses, and broken branches from cedars and pines can make beautiful wreaths, swags, and arrangements.

With the help of a glue gun, florist wire, some pretty ribbon, and a little creativity, you can make a beautiful winter creation that will be one of a kind.
