For several days I sprayed water and hung them down to open them up. Once I hung them, I no longer sprayed water on them. Even so they did last until after the first of the year. They were some flat when I received them but not as flat as local ones. I live in the lower south. You could smell a slight balsam scent when opening the door, but not as much as I had hoped. They did last until after the first of the year. Overall I was pleased with them for the price.

I purchased six wreaths and swags from O-stock this year.....all were lovely and full. However, I question how fresh they really were when shipped....those on outside doors still look fine however the inside ones are shedding needles and would be a fire danger if used w/ candles. I'm using electric candles and have sprayed the wreaths w/ a balsam and cedar spray so they will at least smell fresh. In the future I think I would order later in the holiday season and hope they would last through New Year's.

This wreath was full and double sided and had the wonderful balsam fragrance. A real bargain for the price. I have previously purchased wreaths for twice the price which did not last as long as this one. It comes undecorated, but I saved wreath decorations from the past and just added them. If you dont have decorations from a previous wreath, all you need to add is a nice bow, or 1-2 yards of wide Christmas ribbon and make your own bow.
