A simple wreath of greens that is easy to make to decorate your home for fall and festive occasions. Makes a great gift for precious friends too! Here’s how.
Materials and Tools
Grapevine wreath (I purchased this 30 inch wreath on sale at Michael’s)
Fresh greenery – evergreens and eucalyptus dries well and fragrant
Small gauge wire (preferably green)
- Begin by disassembling the 30-inch wreath into 4 thinner wreaths. Determine the shape of your design; use your own personal style for a more rustic look, or simply form each wreath in a traditional round shape.
- Add greenery. I bought two varieties of eucalyptus at Trader Joe’s and foraged the cedar and rosemary from my yard. Attach greenery to the wreath using wire as needed. I cut a 2-inch piece and twisted it, like a twist tie. Continue adding greenery until you’re pleased with the look.
- Add embellishments such as pinecones, berries, decorative grasses, etc., wiring in place as needed.
- Last step is to add a simple bow or knot and let the streamers hang effortlessly.
