Steps for making a homemade Christmas Wreath

  1. Start by working your clippings into small bunches of material. Strip the ends of your clippings to make wire wrapping easier
  2. Secure your wire to the hoop by wrapping it around a few times
  3. Add your base greenery. Work your clipping bunches in one at at time. Alternate your bunches by wrapping some away from the loop, and some towards the inside of the loop. Working back and forth in this way helps the wreathe become fluffy and filled out.
  4. Once you’ve added your greenery, add in your accents.
  5. For the final decoration, secure a ribbon with a bow to hang your wreath.
