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! ;)
