DIY Holiday Chicken Wreath

Switch up your traditional wreath with a festive and whimsical chicken wreath for this year's holiday season

Holiday Chicken Wreath

This chicken wreath features natural elements including a variety of evergreens, magnolia leaves, berries, pine cones and festive holiday ribbon. It can be displayed indoors or out.

The chicken wreath's base begins with a chicken wire form. Floral wire helps to attach the leaves. Starting from the tail, it is a layering effect.

The legs are formed from carefully cut branches. The legs and feet are wired onto the frame under the foliage feathers. Now take a peek at the link below for the full step-by-step photo tutorial.
