Make Your Own Pine Wreaths


Why buy freah pine wreaths when you can make them in a matter of minutes? Collect free scraps from tree lots and wire the scraps on an inexpensive wire wreath form with green floral wire.

Done Deal.

Cut your branches down so that they are all about the same size....8-10 inches....and wire the scraps onto a wire wreath form. Make sure they are all going in the same direction.

    If you spray your evergreens with a product called Wilt Proof they will last most of the winter

    This is wonderful! I've always wanted to use real greenery to decorate for the holidays but could never afford to do so. You have made it possible financially as well as earth friendly to decorate for the holidays. Thank you everyone for the feedback:)
