Laurel and Silver Poinsettias Decoration
Set aside the idea that every wreath needs to be circular; it can certainly start out that way, and then trail off.

Small wreath frame
Green floral wire
Secure laurel branches around a small wreath frame using green floral wire, and punctuate the leaves with silver faux-poinsettias.
Mount it and wire more laurel onto the bottom of the wreath, tapering the shape as you work down the door. Then add more blooms or ornaments for shine. (Note: Like magnolia leaves, laurel is hardy, so this stunner will last all season.)
