Living Wreaths - A Good Idea

Here's what you need to make your very own living wreaths.

You need a wire frame, a floral sponge (you know that green stuff you get in a vase when someone send you flowers) tape, and a saucer or pot.

Take your circular wire frame and tape the floral sponge around it. Then put the wire wreath frame in a saucer or bowl that can be filled with water.

Go out in the garden and cut leaves or berries. Juniper, rosemary, pine or any greenery and berry work well.

Cut the branches about 4 to 6 inches long and place in a cold bucket of water. The branches should keep for about 2 to 3 days if you place them in water.

Then place the branches and berries in the wreath frame. It will last for weeks as long as you keep it water in the bowl.

If you want to hand your wreath you won't keep it in a bowl, but you will want to water it, even after it is hung.
