I’ve grown up in the country and every year I make a big wreath for our front door. Each year it is a little different and never planned. Sometimes I gather sticks and pine cones from the forest and wire them together and some years, like this year, I buy a pre-made wreath form and go to town decorating it. This year I made wreaths for my 3 siblings and their families, my co-workers, and a few close family friends.
What you need…
1. A wreath form or wire to make your own. This wreath is a pine, spruce, cedar mix. Your house smells great while making them!
2. Ribbon for hanging
3. Tools- wire cutters, pruning sheers, scissors, and lots of wire (20 guage is perfect)
4. Some natural elements to add such as magnolia leaves, holly berries, and pinecones
5. Artificial elements for a bit of long lasting glitz.
I made 11 wreaths in total and wanted each one to be different. I planned each wreath by laying out each form side by side and planning what natural elements, artificial elements, and ribbon I would combine on each one. A beautiful mess! Each piece, real or artificial, is wired individually to the wreath frame.
