I shared in my Instagram stories that I was making my own wreaths this year from greens foraged from my farm. When I asked if you’d like me to share how I did it, 100% of you said yes! So here we go!
I’m not an expert—I’ve only made 12 wreaths in my entire life. But I will say it goes quicker than you think so long as you have your greenery ready and cut to size before hand. Consistent bunch size is key for tying to the form for a consistent shape. At the end of the season when the wreath browns, I’ll be composting the greenery. The forms will be reused next year.
