How To Make A Christmas Wreath

Read our top tips for making a Christmas wreath with flowers from your own garden!

Try your hand at this gorgeous take on a traditional Christmas decoration.

What you will need:

  • An oasis ring available from Spotlight, Lincraft or some flower stores
  • 2-3 bunches of greenery
  • Lengths of jasmine or any flower of your choice

Instructions:

  1. Soak the oasis ring in water for about five minutes (don't press oasis ring down as this will cause air bubbles to enter foam, creating dry spots).
  2. Cut greenery into 10cm lengths - each length should have a stem about 5cm long, with two leaves at the top. Working around the side of oasis ring, push stems well in on a slight angle, keeping the angle the same all the way around. Repeat process on top of ring.
  3. Dot small lengths of jasmine around wreath, pushing into oasis ring on an angle as you did with greenery.
  4. There is no need to add a loop for hanging as the wreath is easily hung on a nail or hook however it is up to you.

Three Alternative Christmas Wreath Ideas

  • Want a white Christmas? Add a little white paint, glitter or sparkly white ribbons to your wreath for a touch of frost.
  • Candy canes are just as much a part of Christmas as holly and tinsel. Weave these into your wreath for something fun and different.
  • Feathered boas can make a great alternative to flowers. Simply weave one around a ring and voila!
