THE EASIEST WAY TO MAKE A LIVE WREATH

Materials:

any old faux green wreath (the more *snarls the better)

fresh green ~ short-needled periwinkle and other greens for interest

Hot glue gun or hot glue pot

old gardening gloves

ornaments or other Christmas decorations

bow

Wreath binding stand, optional HERE you can find one.

*snarling: adj… motley, battered, worn out

That’s just the beginning of the wreath… pretty thin and pretty gnarly! Loosen it up as best you can.

Use old gardening gloves when cutting the periwinkle.

Cut fresh greens. Use plenty of Christmas tree greens such as Fraser, Douglas, Balsam, or other short-needled, hardy evergreen branches for the base of the wreath.

I’m buying a Christmas tree that has a B or B grade. It cost me about $20.00 for a 6 foot tree. My local greenhouse sells them. I cut it apart and keep the clippings in a trash can ready to use.

Cut the greenery to the size of the wreath you want to make.
