Heavy "Snow" . . .
Cover your Christmas Wreath with “Snow” by adding Baby’s Breath!!
Begin by making a bow out of the Christmas ribbon. Use a 18” long piece of wire to secure the bow. Set the bow aside.
Cut the Christmas greenery in small branches. Use the rose strippers to remove the needles from the bottom of branches. Place the branches on the outside and inside of the wreath form.
Cut the Baby’s Breath into small clusters. Place these clusters in the foam close together. Cover the entire center of the wreath with baby’s breath. Leave an area at the top of the wreath open to place your bow. Take small branches of Christmas greenery and place randomly in the baby’s breath.
Place your bow on the wreath by running the end of the wire around the wreath. Secure the wire at the back of the wreath.
If using Christmas lights, place the light string in the front of the wreath. Bury the light string in the baby’s breath gently, try not to let them rest on the wet floral foam.
Place the Christmas ornaments on wood picks and secure them with the floral wrap tape. Wrap wire around the bottom of a pine cone and secure the wire to a wood pick using the floral wrap tape.
Decorate the wreath by placing the wood picks of ornaments and pine cones throughout the wreath.
Secure to door by tying the greenhouse twine around the top of the wreath and tying off tightly. Place it on the hanging tool of the door.
You can also create this look by using a fresh Christmas Wreath in place of a floral foam wreath. Use floral wrap tape on the Baby’s Breath clusters. Place the clusters close together in the Christmas greenery. They will stay in the greenery if you place them deeply in the wreath. Because this wreath is so light, you can use the bow to attach the wreath to the hanging tool on the door. After you place the wires of your bow through the wreath, secure the bow close to the wreath. Instead of trimming the wire, create a loop with the excess wire by twisting the wire ends together.
