Wreath Making Materials for Pine Wreath
Unless you want a huge pine wreath, use the 12-inch form because it will end up being twice the size of your expectation after you finish.
- Take a hand full of pine leaves (cut at 6-inch or at a length of your desire) and bundle them together. Lay the bundle slightly diagonally on the wreath form. Then, pull the wire slightly above the cutting ends, and wrap around the bundle and frame a couple of times.
- Make another bundle with pine leaves and place it overlapping the first. Continue wrapping with the wire.
- Keep repeating step 2.
- Now, lay the faux white berries on the pine leaves and attach with either glue or floral wire. Try to spread the berries evenly over every part of the wreath.
- Add 3 to 4 jingle bells in a sporadic manner on the wreath. Attach them with glue. Choose them in silver color with a little bit of golden glitter to keep the festive mood on.
- Make a double bow with the silk ribbon and attach it to the wreath with glue.
