Carnation Wreaths

Add warmth to your hearth with a trio of cheerful red wreaths.

What You Need:

Striking and rich, these red wreaths will impress all of your holiday visitors.
  • Blocks of florist's foam
  • 8-1/2-inch diameter plastic wreath form (designed to hold florist's foam)
  • 10 to 12 dozen red carnations


1. Fill the sink or a plastic tub with water. Place the florist's foam on the water; as the foam absorbs the water, it will sink.

2. Wedge the wet blocks into the plastic wreath form. Stand the wreath on edge (as if hanging on the wall) to let excess water drain.

Step 3

3. Cut the stems of the carnations to about 2 inches. Starting on the face of the wreath, insert the flower heads into the foam, pushing in the stems all the way. If the flowers aren't fully open, leave about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of space between the flowers; if they are fully open, pack them together tightly.

Step 4

4. Repeat this procedure to insert carnations on the outside and inside edges of the wreath until the foam is completely covered.
