How do you make a wreath look bigger?

Trick with a wreath.... Basically, I stack two grapevine wreaths, one smaller than the other, and secure them with brown floral wire. The more tightly you can wrap your wire, the more your wreath base will resemble a single piece. To cap it off, I added another wreath on top. This gives the appearance of many, small flowers when actually you have just one large one.

I've also seen people use bamboo or wooden sticks instead of wires to keep the wreaths together. They then add some dried beans or rice to the bottom center of the wreath to give it weight and hold it in place.

The best part is, once you make one grapevine wreath, you'll never want to work with real flowers again! You can find detailed instructions on how to make a grapevine wreath here.

How do you fluff an artificial Christmas wreath?

Bend the first tip closest to the edge of your wreath outward and raise it upward. Then bend and raise the tip of that tip to face you. Similar to a soft "J" or "S" shape, these tips will help to keep the fluff on the wreath.

The next thing you want to do is take each section of the wreath and brush some fluff onto it. Start with the center piece and work your way out. You can use either the hair from your head or a brush for this purpose.

Once all the sections are covered with fluff, give them another brushing to make sure no hairs were missed. If any are found they can be removed with a pair of tweezers.

You should now have a perfectly fluffy Christmas wreath!

If you plan to hang your wreath up immediately after decorating it then there is nothing to worry about. Fluffy decorations are easy to clean off of any surface. If you plan to let it sit for several days or weeks before hanging it up then you should probably not use real flowers in its construction. The fluff will become dirty very quickly if not cleaned regularly.

To clean it, simply brush off as much fluff as you can and then shake it out.

How do you store Christmas wreaths?

If you want to hang your Christmas wreaths, use florist's wire or twist ties to secure each wreath to a wire hanger, then wrap the wreath and hanger in plastic (we like to use dry-cleaner plastic bags or trash bags to protect the wreath from dust). If you don't want to wear out your wreaths too soon, consider storing them away from sunlight and heat. A cool, dark place is perfect for wreaths that won't be worn until next year.
