BE INSPIRED BY REAL-LIFE
Gather or buy an assortment of flexible branches, such as birch
twigs. Weave the branches into a circle (2) using colour-matched
wire to hold it at key points.
Continue adding branches until you are happy with the overall
shape (3). Work in any loose ends and make sure the wreath is
strong and secure.
Make small bunches of flowers and tie them together with string

Work the bunches of wild flowers in between the branches (5) and
secure them in place with the wire or string if needed.
