Star-Shaped Wreath

Created By: Kathleen Kent

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.

Resources: 26-gauge floral wire, createforless.com, Star wreath form, mainewreathco.com.

Materials

  • Floral wire
  • Wreath branches
  • Star wreath form

Steps

  1. Step 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. Step 2

    Attach 1 end of floral wire to star wreath form.

  3. Step 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. Step 4

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

    This is gorgeous and easy to make! I used "fake" sprigs to make mine so it would last much longer.
