How to make a Christmas wreath

There is nothing better than foraging in your garden for winter foliage, berries and pine cones to decorate your special holiday wreath. Some spices such as cinnamon, star anise and dried oranges can even be added to your wreath. Use the foliage such as the evergreen material to pad out the wreath frame ā€“ put the same amount all the way around. Make sure it is even all the way round and not too heavy to hang on your door. Use florist wire to attach the plant material, berries and cones and allow your creativity to flow by decorating as you wish. Try using plant material like holly, pines and evergreen Magnolia that will last and still look good throughout the whole holiday season. Attach pine cones using wire pins and remember to attach wire or strong string that will allow you to hang carefully on your door. Now all you need to do is add a length of brightly coloured ribbon and attach using a loop of wire.
