Back at base camp, we shed our outer garments and gathered around for a demonstration on how to form the base of the wreath. Everyone picked up the technique pretty quickly and was off to form some really beautiful wreaths.
Valerie and I stuck with the traditional spruce wreath covered in pinecones and red berries for a very festive look.
Paul and Erik concentrated on crafting a spruce wreath adorned with burgundy red rose hips and pinecones from a yellow pine tree.
Glenn wrapped his spruce/laurel wreath in red and gold ribbon for a unique touch.
At the end of the day we all posed for photos with our wreaths.
John and Dave used the feathers and shotgun shells along with the traditional pinecones and berries to adorn their spruce wreaths.
John B. made a spruce wreath covered with a little bit of everything he found along the walk, it really looked spectacular up close.
Mike added some small bows, a gold ball and a HOHOHO to his wreath of white pine and spruce.
