Here's a great way to dress up a plain evergreen wreath with a few added embellishments.

Find out more in our instructions below.


Create a Circular Wire

Fit a wire circle to the size of your evergreen wreath.

Using sturdy wire, create a circular shape that fits about in the center of the evergreen wreath.

Wire Leaves

Attach leaves to wire form.

Cut about 24 four-inch lengths of thin florist's wire. Take one wire and wrap an end around the base of a preserved leaf. Next, wire the leaf to the circular ring and continue until the form has leaves attached all around.

Attach Circle

Wire the round form to the evergreen wreath.

When all of the leaves have been attached, take U-shaped pieces of medium-weight wire and attach the circle to the evergreen wreath in a least four places.

Glue Ornaments

Hot-glue ornaments to the wreath.

Finally, use hot glue to attach gold ornaments to the wreath. Position them so they cover the wire.
