When it comes to making a wreath, you can choose a circle shape or an swag shape,each are different but put together in a similar way. By attaching bundles of fresh picked material together as you use a continuous technique, or by wiring them individually.

Wreathing tools

Double wire frame, good sphagnum moss-holds its water well and keeps moist for your foliage. Twine or mossing wire help to secure your design, along with good cutting floral snips  

As always figure out the ingredients you want to highlight to get the most from your wreath and choose the frame that works best. i find that lots of variation on the foliage give a good base for all your special extras to add the sparkle and scent, if you use dried fruits and cinnamon sticks. Working with the seasons gives you the best choice of flowers and foliage to use. 

i like the good variegated holly we call in the trade ilex Its log lasting and reminds us of the festive season.
