Introduction

Holly's leaves and berries provide a brilliant splash of red and green against an otherwise whitewashed winter backdrop, and while the sprigs looks lovely in a garden, they spread even more cheer when crafted into a welcoming wreath for your door.

materials

  • 4-inch holly branch tips 

  • Berry clusters with stems, trimmed from other holly branches 

  • Ribbon from fabric or trim store

steps

  1. Stretch wreath form into an oval. Secure floral wire to wreath form. Add a berry cluster to three or four holly tips to make a small bunch; lay bunch atop form. Wrap wire around bunches to secure. Repeat, overlapping each new bunch halfway over the last and with all bunches facing the same way.

  2. Continue until wreath form is covered. Attach wire loop at top of form for hanging. Tie ribbon to make a bow and conceal hanger.
