The APA yahoo list has been uncharacteristically quiet for ages….

Kudzu wreath charm:By Ginger Strivelli

Using fresh picked Kudzu vines weave a ring of the size wanted.

Use ribbon to wrap the wreath tightly together every 
2 inches around the wreath. Leave to dry in the sun for 3 days.

Then remove (removing the wrappings or not) decorate the 
wreath appropriate for the need. You can use silk thread 
to make a ‘web’ design in the center or you can make a 
pentagram of the threads in the center…or leave the center 
open. Add gemstone beads, charms, shells, and such as needed.

These make excellent protection charms, Fertility charms 
or abundance good luck charms…depending on the decoration used.
