Turn a few snippings from your backyard evergreens or Christmas tree into a cheery display.

The beauty of these mini wreaths is tied to their simplicity (and tied up with basic, bright red ribbon).


  • Greenery

  • Hot-glue gun

  • Embroidery hoop

  • Ribbon or seam binding


  1. Cut sprigs of greenery (we used spruce, cedar, and juniper) and hot glue around an embroidery hoop.

  2. Repeat to cover the front and back of the rings, and adhere smaller pieces to the inside of the hoops as needed.

  3. Loop a length of ribbon or seam binding around each wreath, and hang.
