Steps to Make a Fresh Evergreen Wreath
Start with tying the wire to the wreath frame. Gather bunches of the plant materials around 6 inches long and 4-6 inches wide and place them on an angle on the frame, to the right outside area.
Then wrap the wire around the bottom 1-2 inches of the bunch. I usually wrap around 2-3 times pulling firmly on the paddle.
The floral wire paddles are so handy. They really let you get a firm grip on it and pull so that you end up with a nice tightly wrapped wreath.
Add another bunch to the left of the first one and attach it by wrapping more wire around the bunch and the frame.
Next, add a bunch below the first bunch overlapping slightly and continue with another to the left and so on. Before you know it you will have completed the entire wreath.
Then cut the wire leaving several inches to attach to the back by twisting it around the frame several times. Adorn with a pretty ribbon, berries, pine cones or leave it just as is.
It’s a lot of fun to create, saves you money, and it smells wonderful.
