How to make an All-Natural Christmas wreath

I have made my own wreath and planter at Christmas for years now, and so when I had the opportunity to make and sell them this year, I was so excited. There are several steps to making an all natural wreath.

Step 1. Make a base. Or a buy a base if you don’t have time. I use white birch because it is flexible yet strong.

Step 2. Stuff the base wreath with moss while wrapping with floral wire.

Step 3. Gather greenery. I like to use a mix of white cedar, Balsam Fir, and white pine.

Step 4. Make a bunch the size of your hand.

Step 5. Place bundle on the inside edge of wreath and wrap with floral wire around the base to attach it.

Step 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5, but attach next bundle to the top of the wreath. Step 7. Repeat steps 4 and 5, but attach next bundle to the outside of the wreath.

Step 8. Now you are ready to start your next row. Overlap the bundle slightly so there aren’t any big gaps. Keep adding bundles to the inside, top and outside, and watch your wreath grow

Step 9. Decorate! Use hot glue for lighter items and wire in larger items. Have fun with it.
