Many materials for a door or Christmas wreath can be found in the garden in autumn, for example fir, heather, berries, cones or rose hips. Make sure that the materials you collect from nature are clean, dry and free from vermin. Do not cut berries, blossoms and twigs too short so that they bind well.
Tie Wreath: A Guide
For a door ring blank you need solid flower wire, binding wire, several pine branches and a household or garden shears.

Take the flower wire twice, twirl it together and bend it to the ring. Screw in the ends so that no sharp edges are created. At one point with flower wire attach a not too small loop as a suspension. Use a pair of scissors to shorten the fir branches to the desired length.
Now place the fir branches on the ring in shingles and wrap them with binding wire. In doing so, let the beginning of the wire survive. When wrapping, tighten the binding wire well. Do not cut off the binding wire between rounds, but let it run off the reel.
Continue in this way until the wire ring is tightly covered with twigs. The last two branches can be pushed under the other, so the conclusion becomes invisible.
Twist the end of the binding wire with the beginning piece and braid it between the branches. Fix the desired decoration with wire on the garland.
The pine blank can then be decorated with a variety of decorative elements. Less is often more! Although wreaths at Christmas time with a lot of jewelry are particularly solemn, should the door wreath but hang over the whole winter over, we recommend a more subtle decoration. Large bows made of floral ribbons, painted or fresh berries and cones, dried flowers or Christmas balls are the classic decorative elements. There are no limits to creativity when it comes to wreaths. As a hanger is either directly the ribbon, or you make invisible hooks from fishing line.

Door wreaths of natural materials
Elegance through simplicity: Here, the fir branches almost work for themselves. The red bow gives a treat without any frills.
A wreath of vine branches with asymmetrical jewelry looks fresh and modern.
Joined spruce cones serve as background for fine white pearls in different sizes. Some snow dust over and finished the winter dream.
A very special version is this lively wreath: The succulents sit in the moss bed and the underlying wire mesh.
Less is often more: The rich green fir branches bring freshness to the dreary winter months and the unobtrusive wreath can hang until well after Christmas.
Decorated festively comes on the doorstep Christmas spirit. The color of the jewelry should always be matched to the color of the door.
It does not always have to be a round wreath: the base wires can be bent into different shapes. But it must be strong enough that the wreath also holds the shape when hanging.
Who pine branches are too boring for the door wreath, who can dare to other natural materials.
There are no limits to the creativity of wreathbinding. In contrast to artificial jewelry, natural materials always give a harmonious picture in color.
