How To Make A Christmas Wreath

Would you like to make a Christmas wreath with your children? Wreath making is easy and fun to do!

Here’s how to do it…

1) Choose three bands of willow or if you have none to hand, a metal coat hanger can be used. Spend some time bending and moulding each piece of willow to make it pliable and bendy. Then make into a  circle, wrapping each piece of willow around the next to make your wreath strong and sturdy.

2) Then it is time to add foliage to your wreath. Start with ivy, looping it round and round. Then add other green foliage; at the Christmas Wreath Making Workshop there was holly, rosemary, hazelwood and more green foliage available, but you can use whatever is at hand.

3) Then it is time to add the finishing touches, such as bows, berries, ribbons, pine cones and more – this was my girl’s favourite part of the Christmas wreath making!

There are no hard and fast rules as to how your Christmas wreath should look; it’s a real chance to get creative and have fun. All Christmas wreaths finish up looking marvelous!
