Its wild, earthy look comes from the tangle of lichen branches and seeded eucalyptus, which are simply tucked into noble fir wreaths. The pomegranates below are brushed with edible luster dust, adding to the glow of the red-and-green tableau.
Wire together two 36-inch noble fir wreaths with backings facing each other. Tie wreaths together tightly with four lengths of silver cord spaced equidistantly, working them deep into the branches to hide them.
Suspend silver cords from a loop of floral wire, and hang loop from a chandelier hook or an S hook drilled into a ceiling beam.
Tuck aromatic eucalyptus leaves and seeded eucalyptus and lichen branches into wreaths.
Hang ornaments, and drape beaded garland, securing with floral wire if needed.
