A wreath won't stay circular as well if it depends on wire to hold its shape. It's best to twine longer (at least four feet long, to make a wreath about a foot in diameter) stems into a circle and keep twining the ends around the circle until they're all twined into it.
The easiest form of wreath to make is entirely made of ivy, used in this way. It takes up to a dozen layers of well-leaved ivy to make a full wreath that holds its shape well. I reckon it should take no more than 20 minutes to make, once you're used to the technique.
The wreath will last for several weeks if it's fixed to the outside of the house. When its leaves eventually dry up and fall, keep the stem wreath as a base for future years' use with fresh greenery.
