Christmas Wreath Topiary Trees w/ Red Transferware

Yesterday I hinted at a recent Christmas decor project I'd just finished up and I'm now ready to show it to you all.  Do you ever have an idea floating around in your head of something you want to create?  I do.  A lot.   More often than not I don't see these ideas in my mind come to fruition, but this is one that I did, and as luck would have it, it wound up that most of the work that I knew it would entail was already done!   About two years ago I made a cute little wreath with a plate anchored in the center of it.  I'm not sure why, but I never made any others, though in the back of my mind I'd been thinking about a similar Christmas decor project consisting of a trio of wreaths in graduating sizes, one atop the other, planted in a flower pot and forming a topiary.
