Mistletoe: Mistletoe Wreath How-To

Photography: Dana Gallagher

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2001


  • Round 12-inch double-wreath form

  • 24-gauge floral wire

  • 3-inch mistletoe tips

  •  6-inch pieces of 28-gauge wire (22 pieces total)


  1. Stretch the double-wreath form into an oval shape.

  2. Using floral wire, wrap mistletoe tips in small bunches of threes and fours. Repeat with 4- and 5-inch mistletoe tips.

  3. Starting at the top of the wreath, secure smaller bunches, adding 4-inch, and then 5-inch, bunches as you work toward the bottom of the form.

  4. To make berry clusters, string three beads onto each piece of 28-gauge wire, and twist the ends of the wire. As you attach mistletoe to the form, wire in a berry cluster after every few bunches.
