Is it me, or is everyone already humming Christmas tunes all day long? I’m getting into the holiday spirit this year by making my own wreath. I was so inspired while browsing through my local flower mart. I picked up a huge bunch of bay leaf branches and dried berries to create this one of a kind holiday wreath. You could use any kind of greenery, branches, herbs and dried flowers to create your wreath. This DIY wreath project would make the perfect craft night with some girlfriends this holiday season. Now – if you do not want to take the time to make a Handmade Holiday Wreath, you can buy them online like this one or this.
Step 1: Cut sections of bay leaf branches. I found it best to use three small sections about 5 inches long. Wrap the ends together with floral wire.
Step 2: Section off some berries and attach to bay leaf section with wire.
Step 3: Hold the section up to metal wreath ring and wrap securely with wire.
Step 4: When adding new sections, make sure to cover the wire completely.
Step 5: Repeat these steps until the wreath is full.
Step 6: Trim and secure as necessary.
