FINISHED product is a festive holiday wreath.

Welcome the holidays with a festive wreath to hang on your door.  As your guests enter your home, they will immediately feel the Christmas spirit. Decorating a wreath is simple and easy.

We found our wreath at Metro Gaisano Market! Market! in Taguig.  The wreath was inexpensive and beautiful.  It’s a full wreath, with a lush variety of pine leaves and mini pine cones.  We got shiny and matte Christmas balls and clusters of berries from Landmark.  To add a touch of whimsy, we added Nutcracker ornaments from Nest.

STORE-BOUGHT wreath, several stems of mixed berries and an assortment of shiny and matte red balls are the basic components you will need.

Fluff up your wreath by adjusting and positioning the pine leaves properly.  Gently insert the berries around the wreath, spacing them evenly.  Scatter the balls in the areas beside the berries.  We grouped the Nutcracker ornaments in pairs not apart from each other.  When all your materials are in place, fasten them on the spine of the wreath or around the pine leaves with floral wire so they are kept in place.
