Merry Meet :)))
I become a crafty witch around the holidays. Today we are spending the day making wreaths. It's something I remember doing when I was little. We are going out into the woods this afternoon to get the perfect branches for the wreaths, pine cones, winter berries, and whatever else strikes our fancy. I think this is a wonderful activity to get us outside during the winter, and our children if we are blessed with them. The walk in the woods to search for branches and treasures for the wreath is always a treat.
History of the Wreath
How to Make Your Wreath
There are many ways to make wreaths. The following is how I make them.
- 2 wire coat hangers
- floral wire
- floral tape
- Nature, evergreen branches, berries, pine cones and whatever else you wish to add.
- hot glue gun optional - to help add pine cones berries etc
Take 2 wire hangers and set them 1/2 inch to an inch apart to form the base for your wreath.
Use floral tape to wrap around the hangers so that they stay in that position.
Use branches that are about 8" in length and start working your way around the wreath by laying a piece of branch on the hanger and wire wrapping it to the base. Overlap them and keep repeating this process until the entire base is covered.
Add any decorations you wish with the floral wire or the hot glue gun.
Love and Blessings,
