How to Make an Evergreen Wreath!

Decorating for the holidays doesn't have to be extravagant or break the budget. Nature provides the best materials, especially if you just put up your tree -- snag a few of those bottom branches. Not only will your wreath loog great, it will smell wonderful too!




What you’ll need:

Small tree cuttings
Door hanger
Floral wire
Pruning sheers
Pinecones, cinnamon sticks, other decorations

How to make it:

1. Gather two branches; wrap the string around the bare branches leaving 2-3 inches before the end. Add branches and wrap the bundle as you go.
2. Add dangling decorations. For the pinecones wrap the wire through the scales, twist in the back and wrap around the branches at the top.
3. Add clip-on Poinsettia leaf or bow to the top.
4. Make a loop of wire for hanging the wreath. Insert a 6-inch piece of wire through the back of the wreath. Twist together the loose ends. Hang the wreath from a hook.
