I had an idea and wanted to have it for a Christmas 
greeting here, but as you can tell it didn't happen.
I wanted to tat my own idea of a wreath.
Here is what I have-I quit and will try to improve 
it later!!!  It looks ok, but doesn't lay as I want it to. 
It's size 40 Lizbeth Christmas Green with 3 different 
sized picots randomly tatted along.  I wanted the it 
to look like pine needles of various sizes.  I like the 
look but my chains aren't correct, and I should have 
had lots more seed beads and in more colors.
 The decorations on the wreath came from the package 
pictured below.  I got it to make earrings out of those 
tiny cookie cutters, and I thought those tiny buttons 
would be great decorations for the wreath idea-which 
as you see I added a bead to the top of for a little sparkle.
 I found a small motif I tatted(not sure what it was for) 
and thought it would make a great back for an Ice 
Drop-yep it does.  This is the front using my regular 
size 40 stitch count from Diane's basic Ice Drop.
 And this is the motif.  Pretty huh?  I love it!!
I think I might try to figure out the stitch count 
and see if I can make others in better colors!!!
Hope you are having a wonderful tatting filled day!!  :)

I love your wreath! Maybe it's not quite as you imagined it, but it's great, a wonderful froth of greenery. The ice drop is fun, and red/white are perfect for Christmas.

Thank you muskaan!!! :) It's close, but it really needs better embellishment which I planned, but not well(I don't want to add things on after, I would rather tat them in. ;) And the chains don't lay as well as I want them to, so....I will take time, since it is a good wreath, to work out the fine details. ;)
