Steps

  1. Step 1

    ld103958msl_1208_wreathht.jpg

    Strip lower portion of cedar sprigs. Take a handful of sprigs, and bind ends to wreath form with wire. Lay an amaryllis bloom on sprigs, and bind to secure.

  2. Step 2

    Add another sprig bundle and amaryllis bloom below first additions, overlapping slightly and securing with wire. Repeat until wreath form is covered.

  3. Step 3

    Tie a double-loop sash bow, and secure with wire to top of finished wreath. Wreath will last up to 3 weeks. For wreath hanging instructions, click here.
