Evergreen Wreaths

Purchase a wreath form at a crafts store. Take medium-gauge wire, and wrap it several times around one point on the frame. Place a small cluster of greens (4 to 6 inches in length) on the wire. Secure by wrapping the wire several times around the ends of the green and the frame. Do not cut the wire.

Take another cluster of greens and place it 2 to 3 inches down the frame, overlaping the first cluster. Wrap this with wire as mentioned above. Repeat this process until the form is covered.

With the last cluster, lift the first cluster of greens and wire it underneath, and then cut the wire. Wire pinecones and bows to the arrangement for more appeal.
