How to make a lush Christmas wreath

Updated: Nov 13, 2019

Last year I was taught by a friend how to make a Christmas wreath and it’s a wonderful bit of knowledge. I think I will make one every year from now one. It’s a lovely thing to do which starts with a walk out foraging lovely firs, holly and other greenery. Here’s how you do it...

You will need:

  • metal ring or willow round base

  • plenty of greenery eg Fir and Holly

  • garden wire

  • wire cutters

  • secateurs

  • ribbon

How to do it:

1. Cut up your greenery and create a bouquet of about 10 inches long. Secure with garden wire.

2.Make around 12-15 of these individual bouquets.

3. Attach each bouquet to the wire ring or willow ring securely, overlapping each one as you make your way around the circle until each one is in place and the whole circle is covered.

4. Use some thick ribbon or material to hang up your wreath.
