Christmas trees were introduced to Britain in the late 18th century by Queen Charlotte, consort of George III, reveals the latest post on the Royal Family’s official Instagram account. And with Christmas just a few weeks away, florists from the royal household have shared a video showcasing their in-depth method for creating a traditional Christmas door wreath.
Check it out below.
Here are some things you need to make your own wreath
- Dried fruit slices
- A few cinnamon sticks
- A pair of scissors
- Reel wires
- Green florist wires
- Foliage (pine, holly, ivy)
- Christmas ribbon
- String for hanging
- Dried pine cones and lotus heads
*Attach the end of the wire to the copper wreath ring. Next, divide the moss into eight parts and mould it with your hands in the form of sausages.
*Using the reel wire, bind the sausage mosses to the copper wreath wring. Next, carefully select the foliage you would want to use. We would suggest taking one of each, and don’t forget the berries!
*Bind your wreath ring again using the reel wires to secure the foliage along with the moss.
*Finally, add your decorations by sticking little pine cones, berries or more ivy and holly to the wreath. Give the finishing touches by adding a bright red Christmas ribbon. Your decor is ready!
