Decorating comes naturally to this Santee, South Carolina, couple.
- Start with a 15-inch florist foam wreath that has been soaked in water. Dave prefers the Oasis brand wreath base (item number SMI-1030 at www.afloral.com).
- Set the florist foam wreath atop an empty 3-gallon nursery pot. The groove on the bottom of the form fits perfectly on the pot, which helps keep it stable.
- Insert individual leaves directly into the foam so they are perpendicular to the form. No need for wire or glue. Four concentric rings of leaves will cover the wreath.
