You’ll just need a few things to make this pretty Christmas Wreath.
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
- wreath form
- wire cutters
- floral pins
- straight pins
- hot glue gun
- one large poinsettia
- greenery stems with berries and pinecones
Step One: Wrap wreath with ribbon
Start by wrapping your wreath form with the decorative ribbon. Insert a floral pin in the back of the form to start the ribbon.
Continue wrapping the ribbon around, pulling the ribbon tight as you go.
When you’ve completely covered the wreath form, cut off the excess ribbon and secure the end to the back of the wreath with a floral pin.
Step Two – Cut the greenery and flower
Now it’s time to cut down the flower and filler.
I decided that my poinsettia was a little too big so I removed the bottom layers of petals and snipped them at the stems. I’ll use them later when I get to placing the poinsettia.
Step Three – Add the greenery to the wreath
But first, start out with the filler. Pin on some of the greenery as shown above.
Next, add another layer of greenery and berries.
Then add some leaves and pinecones.
Step Four – Add the poinsettia
Remember those poinsettia petals that were removed? This is where I used them. I used straight pins to attached to the wreath,
and then hot glued the rest of the poinsettia on top.
(Since this wreath is light-weight, I just used some hot glue and attached a floral pin to the back to use for hanging.)

I’ve never been good at flower arrangements either, or wreaths! I’m going to have to try your method for my next wreath, I think I can handle this one!
