Tools and Materials
- 10 basswood strips (24 inches each) per 36-inch star
- Craft knife or mini saw
- Wood glue
- Cut greens, such as rosemary, cedar, juniper, and boxwood
- Hot-glue gun
- Cut wood strips in half to create twenty 12-inch strips.
- Print the Evergreen Wreath template. Using template as a guide, create the base form: Cross 2 strips together and glue with wood glue. Cross and glue a second pair the same way, then glue the second pair to the first to form a base with 8 spokes. Let dry.
- Create the star points: Arrange a pair of strips into a V shape. Glue the star point ends together, then glue the opposite ends to the base tips (alternating the overlapping, as shown).
- Continue gluing the wooden strip points around the base until you have 8 star points.
- Cut your greenery into pieces the same lengths as the sections of the wooden strips (or use shorter or longer pieces of greenery as necessary).
- Hot-glue the cut greenery to the sticks.
