Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- New twigs (the bendy ones that haven’t dried out)
- Heavy wire (floral wire would work great, I just had hardware wire)
- Pliers/ Wire cutters
- Pruning shears
- White spray paint
- Juniper sprigs
I actually went into my back yard to salvage twigs for this. After the last wreath hop, I was determined to try and create a wreath form out of twigs and I’m so glad I tried! It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I expected, and that means the wreath form was FREE. That made me do a little bit of a happy dance. The key was only using newer branches (the baby ones) that hadn’t dried out yet- this way they were bendy instead of breaking when I tried to bend them. I used wire to attach the branches, wrapping it around tightly with the pliers. When I was happy with the shape and thickness of the wreath, I gave it a light coat of white spray paint.
