Christmas Holly Wreath
- First of all, collect 40-50 holly berry branches and, with the help of a florist scissor, cut them into equal numbers of 12-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch pieces.
- Then wrap a green florist's wire around the 16-inch holly berry branches and stick the branches around the perimeter of a 16-inch wire wreath frame. Make sure that they are evenly spaced.
- Now, wrap florist's wire around the 14-inch branches and stick them to the perimeter of the wreath frame, spacing them evenly.
- Lastly, wrap florist's wire around the 12-inch berry branches and attach the branches around the perimeter of the wire base. Ensure to fill in all the gaps so as to create a full wreath.
- First of all, place a foam wreath form on the table. Figure out how you would like the holly branches to be positioned on the wreath so that the berries get enough display. Now cut the branches using florist scissors.
- Then start attaching the branches one by one by digging the end of each branch into the foam. Push the end into the foam to ensure that it is fully secured. Make sure that the front of the foam is completely covered; branches should be placed in a random order for a rugged look.
- Continue the previous step till you attain a build with ample layers of branches so that the foam gets hidden but a prominent wreath shape is still visible. For the last layer of branches, you can apply a small amount of glue to their underside so that they stick well to the layers below them. Keep attaching the glued branches until your wreath assumes a fuller look and voila! Your wreath is ready.
