Adorning your front door, staircase or mantelpiece with a Christmas wreath is the perfect festive way to welcome guests into your home. Making your own is as easy as wrapping presents – but it is no longer environmentally responsible to use florist’s foam. Garden designer Joy Grey shows us an alternative method of creating a beautiful Christmas wreath.

YOU WILL NEED

A wire ring. The size depends on your door – I used a 30cm ring
Secateurs
Reel of florist wire
Florist stubbing wire or similar
Wire cutters
Moss (from a florist or forage responsibly)
Greenery such as conifers, holly, box etc from your garden or the hedgerows. Three to five different kinds wired together into bundles.
To decorate: pinecones, berries, holly, rosehips, seed heads, flowers, twigs and bundles of cornus stems or cinnamon, ribbon, dried orange slices.
Ribbon or something to use to hang the wreath.
