Fresh pine Christmas wreath, do-it-yourself, just PHP150 or less, plus cost of ribbon. :) But you probably need a trip to the wholesale flower market in Dimasalang/Dangwa to get the pine that is brought down from the Mt. Province… Just purchase a rattan ring for PHP25, use roughly PHP100 worth of pine leaves and some wire to attach the leaves to the rattan ring. Took less than 20 minutes to do. Our wreath at home had a very simple grosgrain red ribbon around it. The evergreen has a nice fragrance, and dries green.
My Chief of Stuff also made a wreath for the front door of his home, and he opted for the more festive/flashier wide plaid ribbon. We have done this several times before, and I can tell you, it’s such a pleasure to hit the holiday season with loyal crew that know what to expect, what to do, how to prep for the festivities, and who seem to enjoy it all as well… :)
