  • Homemade wreaths?

    We have a holly bush in front of our new house and I fancy making our own wreath for the door. Anyone has any idea on how to make one?

    Re: Homemade wreaths?

    I bought all my weath stuff from ebay- you need a ring, florists wire on a reel, green wire strands and german pins, as well as moss, or you could use an oasis ring but I don't know any tips for that way.

    Here is a post I did last year with some tips

    http://www.damsels.org/forum/showthr...th#post2695941

    The only thing is that I did my first one using holly and I would say never again. It's harder to work with, as well as being prickly and it doesn't last as long as other greenery though I think you would be ok by now. I much preferred using evergreen, and I found something else with red berries on for colour.

    Another idea which might be easier (and save getting the kit) is to do a holly swag, I think they look effective.

      Here's mine from last year:



      I make up lots of little bunches and then wire them onto a wicker ring - this year I will use dried orange slices but sometimes I whole satsumas and rose hips instead of holly berries as we don't have any this year. The greenery is a mix of yew, fir and ivy as that's what we have in the garden. The fir cones come from a tree up the road.

            Our local florist/interior shop have done workshops this week and have just put the picture on facebook - they have a beautiful one with peacock feathers as part of the decorations
