Steps to make a Christmas Wreath
Step 1. Choose a theme
Visualize the wreath you want. Choose the color combination you want to use and purchase your supplies accordingly. For a more classic look, I recommend a color combination of red, gold, and green. You can also go for white, silver, and green for a white Christmas vibe.
Step 2. Adding Foliage
Now that you have picked your theme for your Christmas wreath, and the supplies needed are ready including the wreath base, it’s time to start creating your wreath. Starting with the wreath foundation, attach pine leaves using floral wire while paying attention to the base's round shape. Place them in the same direction overlapping the other to create a spiral movement. Add more pine leaves until the base is fully covered.
Step 3. Add a touch of dried components
Step 4. Decorate your wreath
Remember the Christmas ornaments? It’s time for you to get creative with them. Use a floral wire to attach the ornaments to your wreath. Choose the color combination of your liking. Combine components of varying sizes and create clusters or spread them evenly around the circle. You are free to add extra ornaments as you see fit. Let your creativity loose.
Step 5: Wrap it up
Finalize your wreath by adding a Ribbon of your liking. And lastly, add a loop using floral wire so you can hang it on your door. E voila! you just created your first Christmas wreath!
