For this project, you’ll need a wire wreath frame, some florists’ or paddle wire, and some pruners. You’ll also need some festive-looking plant material gathered from your garden, such as berry-bearing holly, ivy, and conifer sprigs. You may like to add a bow or ribbon as a festive finishing.

Making a Holiday Wreath Step-by-Step

• Cut your materials to size. (Make sure they’re in proportion to the wreath frame.)
• Fix the end of the florists’ wire to the wreath frame by wrapping it around the frame three or four times. Pull it tight to lock it in place.
• Choose a piece of each material for your first bundle. Position the largest pieces at the base and anything with berries toward the top.
• Place the bundle on the frame where you’ve fixed the florists’ wire. Wrap the wire around the bundle three times. Pull it tight.
• Repeat with each additional bundle until you’ve nearly filled the frame. Overlap each bundle with the next to hide the wire.
• Make a smaller bundle to finish with. Tuck this under the first bundle. Fix it in place with the florists’ wire.
• Turn the wreath over. Cut the florists’ wire and secure it into the wreath frame.

I use the plans at WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG to build my own DIY projects – I highly recommend you visit that website and check their plans out too. They are detailed and super easy to read and understand unlike several others I found online. The amount of plans there is mind-boggling… there’s like 16,000 plans or something like that for tons of different projects. Definitely enough to keep me busy with projects for many more years to come haha Go to WWW.EASYWOODWORK.ORG if you want some additional plans :)

Celebrate this Christmas season with joy and gladness in your heart... I would like to bring this to the notice of the public about how i met Funding Circle Loan PLC after i lost my job and been denied loan by my bank and other financial institution due to my credit score. I could not pay my children's fees. I was behind on bills, about to be thrown out of the house due to my inability to pay my rent, It was during this period my kids were taken from me by foster care. Then i set out to seek for funds online where i lost $3,670 that i borrowed from friends which i was rip off by two companies. Until i was referred to Funding Circle Plc by a very good friend, so if truly you are in need of a loan i advise you contact this Godsent lender via Email: OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be free from scam' Jennie Cortez by name from United State
