Silver Fir and Holly Wreath

Silver Fir and Holly Wreath

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2008

Introduction

To carry on the cheerful tradition of holly-bedecked halls, add berry accents to a circle of silver fir. Because holly dries out quickly, it's best to display this wreath outside.

materials

  • 22-inch-diameter silver fir wreath

  • Large holly branches

  • Floral shears

  • Wired floral picks

  • Scissors

  • 2 yards 6-inch-wide red satin ribbon

  • U pins

steps

  1. Trim holly branches with shears to make twelve 4-inch berry sprigs. Align each sprig stem with 1 floral pick, and wrap with wire to secure.

  2. Starting at bottom just off center of wreath, insert sprigs, continuing about 3/4 of the way up each side.

  3. Wrap a 1-foot ribbon length around bottom of wreath. Secure at back with U pins.

  4. Tie remaining ribbon length into a large bow. Attach to wreath with pins, inserting beneath bow to hide. Trim bow tails to desired length. To create scalloped edges, fold ends accordion-style into fourths and round end with scissors.
