Step 1

Step 1

Noble fir and holly foliage to start

Cut noble fir or holly foliage into 8-10cm stems and strip the
leaves and greenery off the lower part of each to leave 2-3cm
bare. Make several small three stem bundles of each.

Step 2

You'll need wire frame & tape

Take a 22cm circular wire wreath frame and reinforce it with
0.56mm reel wire and wreath wrap tape. Lay a bundle on top
and attach with the wire, wrapping it around the frame and
stems three times - don’t cut the wire.

Step 3

Add another bundle

Add another bundle so that it overlaps the previous one by half.
Wrap more of the wire around the stems and frame. Continue
adding bundles in this way until you get back to the starting point.

Why not add some mistletoe

Trim the end of the wire with secateurs, leaving a few extra inches
spare to hang the wreath. Form the end of the wire into a loop
and twist it around itself to make a tie. Hint - why not add some
mistletoe to the centre of your wreath for extra detailing.

cinnamon sticks to adorn

around the wreath and secure them with extra wire.
