I took a frame (purchased on an auction site) and added fresh greens, being blue spruce, cedar and white pine (long needles) for the mane for this horse head wreath.  I then wired on a small pine cones for an eye and a nostril.  Once I hung it, I tweeked the greens, and moved the pinecones to just the right spots, I added the gold and silver cluster of Christmas ornaments, pinecones and leaves to just below the ear.  Then I made the halter and reins from gold ribbon that was light weight and wavy.  I love it, and since others have seen it already, will be making a few more right away per their requests!
