Make a Holly Wreath

To carry on the cheerful tradition of holly-bedecked halls, add berry accents to a circle of greenery.

Make a Holly Wreath
Because holly dries out quickly, it's best to display this wreath outside.

You Will Need:

  • 22-inch-diameter fresh-cut wreath
  • Scissors
  • Large holly branches
  • 2 yards of 6-inch-wide red satin ribbon
  • U pins
  • Wired floral picks
 

How-To:

  1. Trim holly branches with shears to make 12 4-inch berry sprigs. Align each sprig stem with one floral pick, and wrap with wire to secure.
  2. Starting at bottom just off-centre of wreath, insert sprigs, continuing about three-quarters of the way up each side.
  3. Wrap a 1-foot ribbon length around bottom of wreath. Secure at back with U pins.
  4. Tie remaining ribbon length into a large bow. Attach to wreath with pins, inserting beneath bow to hide. Trim bow tails to desired length. To create scalloped edges, fold ends accordion-style into fourths and round with scissors.
