🐞 Would you like to give a natural look to all your creations with real honeysuckle vine? The same woman who hand-ties my wild birch wreaths also harvests honeysuckle vine for me.
There is a lot on these rolls. I cannot be measured by the length because some vines are thicker than others so you might get more feet/yards on one roll than another. When I get out one of these rolls to use, I can sometimes get enough loops and curls to add to 8 or 10 wreaths.
I use these loops and curls to hold clay pots, bird houses, and other items into my wreaths. That makes them really secure!
Honeysuckle can also be used in arrangements and even in Christmas trees!! Actually, it looks awesome in 2 to 7 foot Christmas trees.
I came up with the idea of using freshly harvested honeysuckle vines in my wreaths and floral designs over 25 years ago. I really like the “wild & natural” look as well as the lighter wood contrast that this gives my wreaths.
I searched for something which would curl out giving a different shape, making my design look like it had actually grown in the woods and it does. With this fresh honeysuckle vine, you can make many loops and curls which radiate out of your arrangement. It is so very easy to tuck the ends right into your wreath, and anchor in with glue and a pinch of sheet moss. Yours will look like none other! The smaller loops of the vine can also make a wonderful spot to anchor your sweet bird’s nest with a bird perched on the side.
The possibilities are endless with honeysuckle vine. You can be really creative as you make loops to hold and anchor just about anything into your wreath.
Personally, I wouldn’t want to make a wreath without it if at all possible.
