Since making my Christmas wreath last year, I made the decision to keep up with the tradition for decking the halls. Since working with boxwood greenery last year, I figured I would switch up my game a bit and try pine.
- Wire (a thick and sturdy kind)
- Wire (a less sturdy, more pliable and green kind)
- Wreath adornments (I used gold bells and glitter leaves)
Disclaimer – purchase a wire framed wreath, don’t try to make one like I did. It’s just a lot more effort and I would image that it’s more sturdy. The one I did make does the trick though so if you happen to have some wire kicking around – have at it!
Once you have your wire frame (store bought and not the hideous looking one that I made pictured above), you simply work your way around the frame, attaching the greenery as you go with the softer, more plyable and green wire.
When you have covered the wire and your wreath is looking as plush as possible – it’s time to add some accents. I kept it fairly simple and used some glitter leaves and large gold bells. Sometimes during the holiday season, less is more.
And that’s it! Hang it on your door, above your fireplace or where ever your heart desires.
