Star-Shaped Wreath

Star-Shaped Wreath

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2009

Introduction

Less expected than the round form, this star-shaped wreath -- made from sweet-smelling sprigs of golden cedar -- is just as inviting. And it uses the same technique. You can hang the wreath easily with monofilament; the ribbon is decorative.

materials

  • Floral wire

  • Wreath branches

  • Star wreath form

steps

  1. Cut branches into 4- to 6-inch pieces. Gather pieces into thick bundles, and secure each bundle individually with 26-gauge floral wire.

  2. Attach 1 end of floral wire to star wreath form.

  3. Lay 1 bundle on wreath form, and wrap tightly with wire, halfway up bundle. Without cutting wire, add another bundle so its top overlaps bottom half of previous one; wrap with wire.

  4. Repeat to cover form, making sure bends in form are well covered.
