It’s time to drop the ‘C’ bomb, Christmas is upon us! Our cities have undergone festive face-lifts in the build up, christmas fairs, social gathering and wreath workshops are becoming a weekly attendance.
Discover our simple four stage blog on how to create your own Christmas door wreath this festive season. From mossing the wire frame, adding the greenery, adding the decorations to hiding your mechanics with wreath wrap!
The first step that can be made up in advance is the mossing of the wire frames. Alternative options, if you don’t want to get your nails dirty, would be to purchase a pre-made moss ring in varying sizes.
Next step is adding the greenery to the moss wreath with either twine or binding wire. Popular types of greenery include blue spruce, pinus strobus, conifer, eucalyptus, olive and cypresse.
The third step is the BEST, the most creative and individual to your style and home decor! There are lots of different styles and types of decor that you can use to attach to your Christmas wreath. From the traditional pine cones, orange slices and cinnamon sticks to a modern twist using baubles, berries, salix and snow spray!
The fourth and final step is the most important to retain moisture, protect your door and hide the mechanics! Using wreath wrap, you will need to cover the back of the wreath.
