Fresh Christmas wreaths can be made very easily with a few in home and back yard supplies. A few of the basics are some sort of ring, which is usually made from metal; however you could use just about anything that makes a strong circle. Next you will need some thin wire to wrap the greens to your wreath. The greens or evergreen boughs can be from any type of evergreen tree, some examples could be fresh cedar, balsam or pine. Use clippers (pruning shears) and harvest 5-10 lbs, cutting the branches into approximately 6 inch pieces. Now just place a handful of greens and wire them around the wreath ring. Make sure you keep the wire tight and tie it off at the end. Get a bow from a store or if you have ribbon use 6-8 loops on each side with two longer tails. Pine cones and berries added to the decoration will give it that extra touch. Hang the finished wreath on a wall or door and enjoy!
