Through the video, our tutor will provide insight into the eco-friendly mechanics involved, along with useful top tips and tricks to create this design.

Top Tips: While creating your wreath, it is important to periodically step back from the composition, viewing the design from a distance. This will help you to ensure that there is an even distribution of plant material in the composition creating a harmonious design. Moreover, this design is eco-friendly. Our tutor has used chicken wire as the main medium to anchor the stems into position. This allows you to use softer stems within the composition, such as tulips, and daffodils during the Spring months. You will be able to water the design whilst in situ to ensure the design lasts as long as possible! Once the design has faded, you can repurpose the chicken wire and compost the plant materials.

If you would like to recreate the design, you will need the following:
