I wanted a natural wreath to go on a family grave so I went foraging and came back with these
I used Dogwood to make the ring but you can use anything flexible and fairly straight such as Hazel or Willow. Take one piece and form it into a circle the size you want, wrapping it round as you go. Add more pieces until you have something like this -
It's best if it's not too tight so that you have places to push your other bits in.
I then added Eucalyptus, working my way round and weaving it into the base, keeping it in one direction.
Next I added some sort of conifer along the outside edge but I don't know what kind
and finished off with some other kind of conifer which had fir cones on it and some Ivy berries
You can of course use what ever evergreen foliage you've got - Holly would be nice, but a little hard on the fingers
