You’re already seeing Christmas decorations in stores, but maybe you can make a few things yourself this holiday season. Why buy a wreath when they’re so fun and easy to make? Invite a friend over, sip some hot cocoa and have a wreath-making party.
A eucalyptus wreath can welcome visitors at the front door and merrily announce the holiday season.
Make a Merry Ring
- 16â€ť (40cm) wire wreath form
- 12 stems eucalyptus
- 3 stems red berries
- Floral wire
1. Cut eucalyptus stems to about 4â€ť (10cm) in length and gather in small bunches.
2. Starting at one point and working in clockwise direction, wire eucalyptus bunches to the frame. To every third or fourth bunch add a sprig of red berries. Continue until wreath is covered.
3. Cut wire and twist ends around wreath the finish.
Tip: If the country look of red and green is not your style, try spraying the leaves gold or silver for a sparkling holiday, or white for a winter-wonderland effect.
