Make Your Own Christmas Wreath This Holiday Season
A beautiful Christmas wreath is easy to make when you know how to do it! This quick video walks you through how to make a fabulous Christmas wreath, even if you’ve never tried to put one together in your life.
If you’re new to floral design, Laura from Garden Answer will walk you through the simple steps of wreath-making, answering many of the most asked questions about putting a wreath together.
We think you’ll really like this video, especially if you love easy DIY holiday projects. Take a look and see if you agree with our take!
Better yet, go ahead and make one for your front door, or your mantle this season. Have fun, personalize it, enjoy!
I trust that enjoyed the video. Now that you’ve seen how easy it is to create a holiday wreath, you’re anxious to give it a try yourself.
Understanding the fundamentals of wreath-making is a skill that can serve you well. I know several freelance floral designers who do custom wreath design as a seasonal project, and quite frankly, have created a nice source of income from it.
Certainly, it’s something to keep in mind if you’re the creative type and have the time to devote to it.
What do you put on to decorate a Christmas wreath?
Once you’re finished making your wreath, decorating it is really the fun part. What you choose to use is really only limited by your imagination!
Being a traditionalist myself, I like to use natural elements. Some of my favorites include pine cones, lotus pods, birch branches, holly, winterberries, snowberries, dried fruit, and cinnamon sticks.
Natural items like these will dry evenly and the wreath will continue to maintain its fragrance all season long.
Most of these items can be purchased in small quantities at most floral outlets, or by a little foraging outdoors.
I love using ribbon for color and I think it adds a nice finishing touch.
Those are my personal preferences, but I’ve also decorated wreaths with silk flowers, festive ornaments, baubles, succulents, pretty much whatever my customers ask for or that I happen to have around.
One more thing… it’s important
Whenever attaching any type of decoration to a wreath, I recommend wiring it on. You can use a hot melt pan glue, but I like the security of good old-fashioned floral wire for outdoor use, especially in colder temperatures.
If you are just using the wreath indoors, it probably won’t matter much.
Hey, thanks for sticking with me today.
I’m Greg, the owner of Greenfield Flower Shop, and the guy who created this website. I originally started it to share a few flower and plant how-to videos with good people like you. That’s it! That’s all.
There is a big “but” however…
Look, right off the bat, a confession is in order. Truthfully, my own selfish needs are really what prompted me to create this site. See, I tend to “crack out” on floral design videos (like the Christmas wreath tutorial you just watched), and I honestly just wanted a place where I could re-watch all of my favorites under one roof.
With that said, I see a lot of opportunity in creating this site. Why not just be honest, right?
If I have the ability to build a fun and useful blog that other folks love even close to as much as I do, and possibly earn a little revenue at the same time, then I don’t personally see anything wrong.
I’m a pretty straightforward person if you couldn’t tell. But just know… hitting you over the head with sales pitches is not why I’m here. If something offered on my site appeals to you, that’s cool! If not, we’ll still be friends. I’m just glad that you’re here.
Sharing cool floral arranging tutorials with good people like you is just plain fun for me!
And that’s the purpose that FlowersFloralFlorist serves. It’s basically a place for people who care about “all things flowers” to get together and check out some cool videos. I hope you can appreciate that. If so, I’d love to see you here again.
