tree How to make your very own Evergreen wreath.

It is really very easy to make a wreath despite what most people tell me so last Christmas I brought a whole bunch of Christmas trees branches from a Christmas tree lots and everything else I need and just went for it with no instruction. It was very easy and so here is how I did it.

What you'll need
Ribbons
Wreath Frame (can get a craft stores)
Floral Wire
Garden Shears
Gift Bows
Pine cones
Scissors
Wire Clothes hangers

Step One

Gather a large shopping bag full of 6-inch garden trimmings or buy from Christmas tree lot if u have no evergreens. Some suggested trimmings are cedar, pine, fir, redwood, magnolia and oak. Remember to include holly or other red berries in your collection. The tip ends of the branches work best.

Step Two

Use a wire wreath frame or make your own from a wire coat hanger. (Simply unbend it from the familiar shape into a circle; you can use the hook to hang your finished wreath.)

Step Three

Attach #24 floral wire - sometimes called paddle wire - anywhere along the wire wreath frame. Tie it to the frame at that point and keep unspooling it and wrapping as you go around the frame with the bundles of greens.

Step Four

Select several of the garden trimmings and place them together in a bunch with the stems at one end.


And wrap just make sure your next bundle over laps the last one and it'll look great.

I also plan to make a wreath. I have made some in the past using fake stuff from the craft store but this year I want the real thing.
