Wreaths are so easy to make….
…and cheap. (cheaper than I’ll bet you think they are)
At Christmas tree lots there is always a pile of branches trimmed from the bottom of freshly purchased trees. Most places will gladly give these away. We sort through and only take the Noble and Frasier pine. Those pines will usually last longer and have furrier branches than just Scotch or Douglas pines.
We’re just picky like that.
Start with an 18 inch (4 dollar) wreath form like the one we got from the craft store.
Just wire the pine branches onto the form with green paddle wire. Make sure all the branches are about the same length and going in the same direction.
I also picked up some plastic red berries at the craft store. I simply poked them through the greens and wired them from behind into the wreath.
I could make these all day.
The branches were free, the rest was maybe 8 bucks total.
Wasn’t that easy?
So, what are you waiting for?
GO make a wreath!
Hurry, Before it’s January.
