How to Make an Asymmetrical Holiday Wreath

Greet everyone who comes to your home with this wreath on the front door—it's embellished with evergreen boughs and vintage baubles in jewel tones. The fillable metal base can be changed with the seasons.

It's easy to make a wreath in any style. This fillable metal base—combining elements of the Himmeli-inspired geometric shape in a brass finish—can be decorated with fresh flowers, foraged evergreen branches, or small ornaments. We like both Terrain's Fillable Metal Wreath Base and Modlode Geometric Wreath. Hang it on the front door and swap out elements to change as the seasons do. For winter, we used evergreen boughs and vintage Christmas ornaments.

What You'll Need


  • Fillable wreath base
  • Assorted evergreens, such as pine, cedar, and juniper
  • Christmas ornaments (Shiny Brite Mercury Glass Christmas Tree Ornaments, Christopher Radko Nostalgic Holiday Round Ornaments with Triple Reflector, 4")
  • Pruning shears
  • Floral wire
  • Wire cutters


  1. Using pruning shears, cut the boughs of all evergreen varieties into 6-to-8-inch-long pieces. Lay a small bundle of greenery on the base, and wrap floral wire tightly around the stems three times. Do not cut the wire. Add another bundle, overlapping the previous one by half; wrap wire around the stems. Continue adding bundles until you reach the starting point. (For this wreath, we used sprigs of cedar and juniper, but you can use other evergreen cuttings.) Tuck wire under the form, secure with a knot, and cut using wire cutters. (Tip: We only filled half of our wreath base for a modern, asymmetrical look.)

  2. To hang ornaments, thread a 5-inch piece of 26-gauge wire through the loop and twist. Then wrap the other end around an evergreen stem.
