30cm floral foam letter 'O' (available from florists and florist suppliers)
Christmas tree sprigs
Rosehips on stems
Miscanthus flower heads
There’s an element of fun and excess about this contemporary door wreath, with the fluffy miscanthus flower heads adding a touch of a shaggy chic. Precision is the key to success, here - you must ensure all the sprigs are cut to a uniform length and positioned with care. Instead of a classic circle, we used a floral foam in the shape of the letter 'O' as our base to create an oval-shaped wreath.
Make a hanging loop at the top of the floral foam letter, using raffia. Tie it securely, then soak the foam in a bowl of water for 30 minutes.
Remove the lower needles from each Christmas tree sprig, then push the sprigs into the foam, completely covering the top.
Insert the rosehip stems into the inside of the foam frame, so they are tightly packed inside the pine sprigs.
Cut the miscanthus stems to an even length and insert them around the outside of the foam frame. Check the finished display before hanging, ensuring that the foam is fully covered.
