Let’s Make Holiday Wreaths!candy-wreath-2

  1. Begin by securing the wire around the straw or metal wreath form.
  2. Make small bouquets of greenery and red berries. Small neat bouquets will produce a tight organized wreath, while large and loose bouquets will produce a more organic looking wreath.candy-wreath-3
  3. Start by securing one bouquet to the wreath by twisting the wire around the wreath tightly 3 times.candy-wreath-4
  4. Point one bouquet towards the center of the wreath and one towards the outside, so you’ll cover the entire area of the wreath.
  5. Continue securing bouquets around the wreath.
  6. Make the bouquets the same size & avoid the urge of making the bouquets larger to go faster.
  7. Once you reach where you began the wreath, lift up the first leaves and place another bouquet and secure with the florist wire.
  8. To hang the wreath, simply make a loop on the back with the wire and use it to hand on nail or with a ribbon.
