Bend the hangers
Take two wire hangers and fashion each into a circle. Don't worry if they're not perfectly round.
Bind the hangers
Bind the hangers together with floral tape to make a base.
Arrange your cuttings
Arrange your tree cuttings on the base, attaching them with floral wire. Make sure the stems overlap.
Glue pinecones onto the wreath, if you want.
Cut holly sprigs into 4-inch lengths and glue them where desired.
Attach a bow
Attach a big store-bought bow to the top with a chenille stem, or make your own from wide ribbon.
Hang your wreath
Hang your creation using the hanger hook. Reward yourself with a spiked eggnog.
