Visit the Francis model at Kitchner by Mosaic at 24th Ave & 163rd in South Surrey for more holiday inspiration.
Begin by spray‐painting your holiday wreath frame with copper spray paint. Lay flat to dry. This ‘wreath frame’ is a re‐purposed dream catcher hoop. These are available at most fabric stores.
Separate stems and cut each to approximately 3‐5” in length. Bundle into small bunches, tie with wire.
Place 2‐3 individual bundles along the holiday wreath to your liking. Strap the bundles on, layering each atop the previous bundle. Overlap the bundles as you add to hide the stems. Create a crescent shape by changing direction of the bundles.
Tie on wire to create a hanger in the empty space where your bundles oppose. Add a grouping of berries.
Finish off with a loosely tied ribbon. Mist thoroughly each day to maintain freshness and enjoy!
