Step 1: Go outside and cut a few branches off a tree. I chose to took clippings from a Leland Cypress tree growing in my front yard. Also, if you have a Holly bush nearby, clip a few sprigs off that too. You will also need a wreath form and some fine gardening wire.
Step 2: Secure garden wire to wreath form by simply tying a knot.
Step 3: Place 2-3 sprigs on the wreath form and wrap the garden wire around the base of the springs to secure the greens.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 until you have successfully covered the entire form with greens.
Step 5: Your wreath should look something like this. I am not going to say it should look EXACTLY like this because artist freedom is encouraged.
Step 6: Carefully trim the base of 3 sprigs of Holly.
Step 7: Insert Holly pieces beneath the wreath greens and into the wreath form if possible.
Step 8: Pull an ornament off your Christmas tree and secure it (using a small piece of garden wire) to the top portion of your wreath.
Step 9: Hang the wreath on your front door and patiently wait for your Handsome Husband to come home and say… Why can’t we buy a real freakin wreath from Costco like everyone else?
