Make a traditional Christmas wreath

Here is a similarly structured christmas wreath using wire  formed into a circle and wrapping green foliage round. This can easily be fixed with  more wire. Add fir combs, red berries  either dried or beads.  Finish by adding  a large ribbon tied into a bow and you create a lovely festive wreath. You could add dried fruit, cinnamon sticks other beads, stars or ornaments depending on availability or taste. This wreath was made by trimming leylandi trees in the garden but you could use holly, ivy yew or any other abundant evergreen tree. I used a wire hanger and formed a circle shape but any reasonably strong yet pliable wire would do. Why not give it a go?
