DIY Holiday Wreath Tutorial

Happy New Year!

I would like to share with you a DIY holiday wreath tutorial that was recently featured on Once Wed.

I created the wreath using greenery that I foraged from my in-laws property in the mountains.  When we see it in our home, it reminds us of our time visiting them over the holidays.

What you will need:

Blue Spruce Clippings
20 Inch Box Wire Wreath Frame
Floral Tape
Floral Design Wire
Hot Glue Gun
Scissors
Ribbon

Instructions:

1. First, gather the materials.  I used scissors to clip greenery from several different blue spruce trees.  I pulled a little bit from the bottom of a few different trees to avoid harming the tree.
2. Arrange the blue spruce clippings around the wreath frame, until you have no blank spaces remaining.
3. Use a mix of floral tap and wire to attach the clippings to the frame.
4. Tie a bow and hot glue it to the bottom of the wreath.  I also hot glued some pine cones that I pulled from the trees.

My wreath has lasted over 3 weeks and it is still going strong.  If you made your own holiday wreaths, I would love to see!  Please post links in comment section below.
