Hello friends. Happy Wednesday. You might have seen this beautiful natural wreath on my Holiday Housewalk last week. Well, today I want to share with you how easy it was to put together…

You will need a grapevine wreath an assortment of faux and real greenery of your choice.
Optional: eucalyptus and pinecones.
Floral wire

I started by purchasing a plain vine wreath from Michaels. This measures approximately 22″  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-2 Start by inserting the larger pieces of faux greenery and place at either side. I didn’t have to secure the stems but I did secure the top part with a little piece of wire.

Cut some of your greenery.  You can mix and match to make bundles or use separate sprigs.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-3
I inserted the sprigs into the wreath and attached it to the vine using floral wire. I again repeated this onto the other side of the wreath.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-4

I cut a different type of greenery and repeated the process of attaching it at either side of the wreath.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-6

Take another layer and attach over the previous layer, working towards the center of the wreath.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-7
I then made little bundles of magnolia leaves and attached them to the center of the wreath.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-8
If you wish, you can add seeded eucalyptus or in this case, I used silver dollar eucalyptus to match my garland. I didn’t have to use any wire to attach the eucalyptus as this is an indoor wreath.  howtomakeanaturalchristmaswreath-10 Lastly, I added a few pinecones here and there and done!

    Lucy, everything you do is stunning! I love this. I think I have a grapevine wreath kicking around here somewhere… might be time to do some trimming of the trees in the backyard! ;)

    I do agree with all the ideas you have offered to your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly work.
    Still, the posts are too quick for starters.
    May you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.
