Foraged Evergreen Wreath


December 7th 2016
Written by Floret
One of the most rewarding things to do during the early days of winter is to collect evergreen branches and make up a bounty of beautiful wreaths. These festive creations are inexpensive, easy to assemble, and make the perfect holiday hostess gifts or winter decoration.

What You Will Need

  • Wreath Frame

  • Heavy Duty Clippers
  • Floral Wire
  • Various Evergreen Foliages
  • Interesting Textural Bits

Method

  1. You will need some type of wreath frame, wire and clippers. This metal ring came from the craft store, but you can also make your own out of wild grape vines.
  2. To start, gather all of the ingredients that you'll be working with. For the most beautiful wreath, you'll want six to eight different kinds of evergreens and some unusual textural bits.
  3. Next make up a collection of small mixed evergreen bundles. Place the more common evergreens on the backside and concentrate the unusual elements on the front of the bundle.
  4. Once you have a nice pile of bundles it's time to begin. Lay a bundle of greens on your wreath frame and secure it with a few wraps of floral wire.
  5. Then, move a few inches down the frame and place your next bundle, making sure to keep the greenery facing the same direction as the last, and secure it to the frame with wire.
  6. Continue adding bundles and wiring them down until the entire frame is covered in greens.
  7. Once the wreath frame is fully covered, it’s time to add in the special little touches that will really make your finished wreath pop.
  8. These specialty elements give texture and interest to the finished wreath.
  9. Once you have everything securely fastened, primped and fussed with, your wreath is ready to be shared!
