initial "wreath"

I made this wreath the first year we were married (7 years ago) to celebrate our new shared initial. I still pull it out every year during Spring so thought I'd share it.

I cut green Styrofoam into the shape of a "W" with a steak knife.  Some of the pieces fell off so I used wire and hot glue to stick it back together. Then I covered the entire thing with ivy leaves from a strand of ivy (probably from the Dollar Store) by poking a hole with the ivy's stem, pulling it out, filling the hole with hot glue and replacing the piece of ivy. I made sure all the leaves were pointing the same direction (up). Then I glued on some green berries. Pretty simple, but it's stood the test of time.
