Growing up in a creative household, Christmastime meant handmade gifts and crafting holiday decorations. The weeks leading up to Christmas would be filled with art projects and a messy dining table covered in art supplies. Not much has changed since then, and each year I find myself in a virtual DIY Pinterest board for the month of December. This latest project is a spin on the tradition holiday wreath, using not only pine and winter berries, but adding eucalyptus for a modern twist. This wreath can be made in multiple sizes and can be hung on the front door or inside so enjoy the amazing scent of pine and eucalyptus!
Pine Tree Clippings (most places that sell Christmas trees will let you take their trimmings for free)
Winter Berry Branches (found at Trader Joe’s or any florist)
Gold Macrame Ring (these come in various sizes, I used a 6″ and a 12″)
Start with your pine sprigs trimmed at various lengths (about 6-10″ for bigger gold ring). With the stems all at one end, place a small bunch onto the ring and wrap floral wire around the stems until secure.
Repeat with another small bunch of sprigs, placing the stems in line with the first bunch, but facing the opposite direction. Continue until desired fullness of pine is reached.
