What material is used to make wreaths?
Styrofoam Forms are great for any wreath you want to cover that will not hold weight on it’s own. It can be covered with fabric, yarn, and any other material. Using glue is a great way to connect items. Styrofoam is a good option for any wreaths you want to have strong base and the classic round shape.
What do you put in a Christmas wreath?
For decoration use: conifer cones, rosehips, seed heads, berries, flowers (skimmia is particularly long lasting), twigs and perhaps bundles of cinnamon or dogwood sticks. Dried orange slices and hydrangea flowers are pretty but can go mouldy if the weather is wet.
What does a wreath symbolize at Christmas?
Together, the circular shape and the evergreen material make the wreath a representation of eternal life. It is also a representation of faith, as Christians in Europe often placed a candle on the wreath during Advent to symbolize the light that Jesus brought into the world.
How do you make a Christmas wreath with real branches?
Start the wreath by taking a few different boughs of greenery and bunching them together at the base of the branch. Take the bundle, and place it against the wreath form. Use your floral wire to wrap around both the bundle and the form a few times, until it feels secure. Do NOT clip the wire when you are finished.
