Step 1: Arrange Greenery

Gather a few different pieces of greenery and arrange them together in a bunch. We used a mix of evergreen, eucalyptus, and decorative pinecones ($5, Etsy). Trim bottoms of branches so they are even and fit on your macrame hoop form. Clip a length of florists wire and use to attach the ends of the greenery to the gold macrame hoop on one side, wrapping tightly. Add in a few sprigs of decorative greenery like holly or artificial red berries ($1, Hobby Lobby).

Step 2: Finish and Hang

Make another bundle of greenery and place it on the opposite side and wire to the hoop. Position decorative greenery or accents like small pinecones or ribbons to hide the ends where the bunches meet. Use the wire or hot glue to secure the pieces in place. Hang the wreath using twine, ribbon, or clear filament (which would give the hoops a cool floating effect). Make three wreaths in different sizes and arrange together for a modern holiday display.
