  • 9-inch single-wire wreath forms (3 total)

  • 24-gauge floral wire

  • 3-inch mistletoe tips

  • Bow and ribbon


  1. Attach the wreath forms at their tops and bottoms using floral wire.

  2. Wrap mistletoe tips in bunches of twos and threes with floral wire.

  3. Starting where the forms intersect, secure two bunches to one of the forms with floral wire so the foliage faces the point of intersection. Repeat, overlapping each pair of bunches halfway over the last. Cover the three forms. Attach the bow using floral wire, and hang from a length of the ribbon.
