A sprig of holly is so varied in color and shape that it needs nothing else to be interesting. To form a garland out of holly or other lightweight materials, simply wire the sprigs to each other, overlapping the stems and wrapping wire where they intersect.

What You Need:

  • Small sprigs of holly
  • Florist's wire
  • Pruning shears

General Garland Instructions:

1. Small clusters of material are wired together at the stems. Place the head of the second cluster over the stems of the first cluster and wire all the stems together.

2. Repeat, adding more clusters until the garland is complete. The head of each cluster should cover the stems of the previous cluster.

Instructions:

1. Select and clip holly into evenly sized sprigs, choosing the fullest and most attractive holly.

2. Select a large holly sprig to begin and attach a length of wire to the stem. Wire on additional holly as described in the general garland instructions.
