How to Make a Christmas Door Wreath

Give your Christmas wreath real standout by adding a few personal touches. From sparkly trimmings available in-store, to berries and rose hips foraged from the garden, it’s easy to give your wreath a beautiful bespoke look.  Stick to one or two extras for a designer feel, or mix and match for a wreath full of traditional charm. Nestle decorations in your wreath’s foliage, and secure it in place with thin wire – it couldn’t be simpler!

What you’ll need:

  • Oasis ring
  • Garden string
  • Evergreens gathered from the garden
  • Rosehips and berries
  • Festive trimmings
  • Ribbon

Watch our how to video and follow the following steps. 

Step 1
Soak the oasis ring in water, allowing it to absorb the liquid.

Step 2
Tie a loop of string to the ring for hanging the wreath.

Step 3
Add short pieces of evergreen to the ring.

Step 4
Push in the rosehips and berries evenly around the ring.

Step 5
Add the festive trimmings making sure they're evenly spaced.

Step 6
Create a large bow and add it to the bottom of the wreath.

 Or why not creat a contempoary festive wreath that's ideal for hanging indoors.

What you’ll need:

  • Bag of moss
  • Oasis ring
  • 15 mini succulents
  • Mossing pins
  • Garden wire
  • Wire cutters

Step 1
Soak the moss in water to make it easier to work with, then cover the oasis ring completley. Remove the plants from their pots.

Step 2
Pin plants one by one into the oasis ring, alternating different plant types for impact. Add extra pins to secure your moss and hold everything in place. 

Step 3
To make your wreath extra secure, wrap florist's wire around it to reduce movement. Fill any remaining gaps with pine cones or festive berries.

Step 4
If you've opted for an indoor wreath made from succulents, soak the oasis once a week in water and allow it to drain, taking care not to over-water. 

Top Tip:
As this is a succulent wreath it’s best kept indoors, and will  make a gorge table centrepiece with a candle or three while you wait for the plant roots to take hold
