Help! Need straw wreath bases!

Hi, everyone! I am looking for 12" straw wreath bases to make boxwood wreaths, and am having a terrible time. Neither Wal-Mart nor our craft stores seem to have any this year, and I'm not finding any on the web. Can't even seem to find urethane bases!

Does anyone have a good source for them (wholesale, if possible)? I've got boxes of fresh boxwood stems, and nowhere to pin 'em! Thanks for any help you can give...

Do you have a Ben Franklin store near you? If so check them out as they carry alot of craft stuff. How about Michaels or JoAnn Fabrics or Hancock Frabrics, they all carry craft stuff. Hobby Lobby? Good Luck!

Don't know if you found your bases yet or not but I was in the same boat until today when I found that the florists sell them. I was pleased with the prices. Hope this helps.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions! We did find some bases at the Hobby Lobby. None of the other craft stores in town had any...

JeanB, I'll be checking around with florists to see who might have them - we'll need another batch sometime soon, I'm sure!

Thanks again for all the info, everyone!
