Nothing says the holidays like a wreath! My mother-in-law (aka Mama Jules) taught me how to make wreaths a couple years ago, and it is so much simpler than you'd think.
What you'll need:
- A wreath frame (can be found at any crafts store for pretty inexpensive)
- Floral wire
- Pruning clippers
- Trees and shrubs (I found all my greenery from my back yard)
First, take your clippers and go cut clippings from your trees/shrubs. You don't need it to all be from pine trees, I include a few branches from a yellow bush. Now that you have all your clippings bring them inside. You will need to take a few sprigs and bunch them together. Wrap the bottoms together with the floral wire and snip the end of the wire with your clippers to cut.
