Pink and Green Wreath

Dusty rose marries dusky green in this subtle, textural wreath.

What You Need:

Hang the wreath indoors or place it outdoors in a protected area. It will last for weeks.
  • Fresh 15-inch Fraser fir wreath
  • 8 silver metal reflectors from antique Christmas lights (or candle bobeches)
  • 8 small bunches of green faux berries
  • Sprigs of dried pepperberries
  • 1 yard of 1-1/2-inch-wide green grosgrain ribbon
  • 1 yard of 3/4-inch-wide pink woven ribbon
  • Fine-gauge green wire

Instructions:

1. Insert a small bunch of green berries into the center of each metal reflector. Referring to the photograph, wire the berry-topped reflectors to the front of the wreath. Center the pink ribbon over the green ribbon, then weave and wire the ribbons around the wreath; cut the excess ribbons. Combine the excess ribbons and make a single bow; wire the bow over the ends of the ribbons that encircle the wreath.

2. Attach a 6-inch piece of wire to each stem of dried pepperberries. Wire the pepperberries into the wreath, filling in the wreath with as many pepperberries as desired.
