{ Fresh Greenery Wreath }

Do you love the smell of balsam during the Holidays? Have extra tree trimmings? If you said yes to one or both of these questions, here's the perfect craft for you! With extra tree trimmings I created a beautiful wreath for my front door!

Here's what you're going to need:
  • 18'' wire wreath form
  • greenery
  • glue gun, glue
  • ribbon for embellishment
Start with larger pieces of greenery and begin gluing them to the outside of the wire form and holding in place until dry. Now move onto the second inner wire and follow the same process, including the very inner wire. Once your piece if covered, begin going through and filling any parts that seem bare, by simply gluing the bottom and pushing into place. I couldn't believe how "lively" this wreath became so quickly! 

As mentioned is one of my previous posts, I had tons of pine cones, so I wanted to add some to my wreath! I used craft glue on the very tips and sprinkled with silver glitter, let dry. I added 4 total. To add some color, I tied a bow with some pretty, sparkly red ribbon I had and twirled the ends. I also sprayed the wreath with a extra hold hairspray and sprinkled silver glitter throughout. 

Here's three different ways to enjoy your beautiful, fresh wreath! Add some burlap ribbon to hang over a door and keep it simple... or incorporate red to stand out by adding a bow... or keep the natural theme going by adding the pine cones for an outdoorsy feel! 

Whatever style you decide on, I'm sure you will enjoy all the beauty this wreath has to offer!
