What you need…
A grapevine frame or a wire frame or a floral foam ring - available from garden centres, florists and craft shops
Green garden wire
Bright red bow
And lots of creativity to make your wreath special!
What to do…
Use the shears to cut the holly to approx. 8 inches. Remove any dried, old, blackened berries.
Use the rubber bands to tie the holly stems into bunches. Make sure to have the stem with the most berries facing the front!
Use the garden wire to tie the bunches of holly securely to the frame. Make sure all the leaves face the same direction, either clockwise or anti clockwise. Use the leaves to ensure that the rubber bands are hidden and that there are no gaps showing.
Decide where the top of your wreath will be. Use the garden wire to make a loop on the back side of the wreath so you can hang it up. And using the wire, tie the pinecone to the red bow and then attach the bow to the wreath.
And now it is up to you! Add your favourite Christmas baubles, Christmas ribbons, cinnamon sticks, dried fruit, something you made in school… everything and anything to make your wreath special to yo
Finally, hang your wreath in your home for all to see – especially Santa!
