It's easy to make a traditional door wreath using materials gathered from your garden. You can adapt our ideas to what's available in your garden or local hedgerows - simply pick whatever is looking good.
Use the birch stems to make a circle roughly 30cm in diameter (tie the ends together if necessary). Weave more birch twigs into the loop to thicken up the sides and create the wreath frame.
Push sprigs of pine into the wreath frame (including any cones you have). Push the sprigs in at an angle to create a neat effect.
Add a few seedheads of old man's beard, binding the stalks into the birch to lock them firmly in place.
Add some silver hearts to bring the wreath to life - any silver decoration with hooks that will latch onto the birch will work well. Now simply hang your wreath in a suitable location.
