Miniature Winter Wreaths

Wired twine and sprigs of holiday greenery can be bound into a small handheld decoration. Then, tie a name card or message for the perfect personal touch.

This idea comes from our contributor Christy Doramus. She uses them in multiple ways during the holiday season: place settings, ornaments, and even napkin rings. Plus, she says you can "spruce up any gift with a handmade mini wreath that can be used over and over again."


  • Wired twine

  • Assorted winter berries or pinecones

  • Floral wire

  • Garden shears

  • Name card and string (optional)


  1. Create the base of your wreath by forming wired twine into a 3-inch circle, wrapping 2 to 3 times.

  2. Use florist wire to attach greenery and accents to the wreath, wrapping each around 2 to 3 times.
