There are many things right in your own yard or garden that can become something beautiful and decorative! These wreaths can be hung anywhere; on walls, doors or door knobs or even in a window.
Long Stemmed Grasses, Grains, Flowers, Herbs; approximately 3cm or 1 ¼” Bundle
Few Twist Ties or Floral Wire
Pruning Shears and Pliers/ Wire Cutters
Small Amount of Ribbon, Raffia or Decorative Cord
Optional, Extra Flowers, Seed Pods or Heads for Decoration
Remove any broad, dead or dried leaves from each stalk.
Arrange bundle with the flowers, seed pods and heads together.
Tie bundle together tightly with a twist tie or short piece of wire.
Separate bundle into 3 equal sections.
Starting tight to the top, braid the stalks. Keep the braid nice and tight just like you would if you were braiding hair. Continue braiding right to the end.
Secure with another twist tie or wire.
Trim or pull off any leaves or stems that are sticking out.
With pruning shears, trim the ends all the same length about 2cm or 1” from the wire.
While braid is still bendable, form into a circle or any shape and join with another wire.
Use the ribbon or raffia to cover up the wire and tie a nice bow.
For a fancier look, add a few extra flowers or grain heads by poking them into the braid.
