A Christmas Wreathby fig + fauna farm on 12/15/12
We made small wreaths to hang in windows and on doors, with hopes to catch a pine scented breeze every now and then. They are easy to make and quite inexpensive. You can gather cut branches from Christmas tree lots. Find more Christmas Tree project ideas in KINFOLK VOL SIX. pg 82-83.
You will need:
18 gauge wire
Christmas Tree Branches
Form a circle shape with your wire (tear drops, squares, ovals and triangles would be beautiful too!) . Twist the two ends together to complete the shape. Cut small branches about 6-8" long and begin to fasten them to the wire, with twine, starting at the base of the wreath. Make sure all of the branches are facing upward. Continue this process until all of the wire is covered. Tie a loop at the top of the wreath for hanging.
* Trees that work well with this project are: Douglas Fir and Spruce
