DIY Holly Wreaths

Holly wreaths are easy to make!  Here are a few simple steps -

Choose your size - pre made straw wreaths come in a number of sizes.  Choose a 30cm one as the easiest size to work with.  Pick foliage and holly that you wish to use.

Tie some garden string around the wreath and fasten.  Taking small bunches of foliage and holly, place on the wreath and tie each bunch as you go.  Cover all the base and then tie off tightly, leaving enough string to make a hanging loop.  Now you can decorate as you see fit - minimalist or go for it with bows, ribbons, baubles, cinnamon sticks, orange pieces, small toys - whatever takes your fancy.  Use string to tie on or use floristry wire.

Attach to your front door and wait for admiring comments!  Over the door hangers are available if you cannot attach your wreath easily.

Keep your wreath looking fresh by spraying with water every few days and it will easily last until 12th night.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas
