How to Make a Wire Wreath


Wreaths constructed with a foam backing can deteriorate more quickly that ones created with a wire backing. If you have trouble locating a wire wreath at a decorating or department store, you can actually make your own wire wreath using a few basic materials that can often be found around your house. This will also allow you to customize the wreath with your favorite silk greenery.

Things You'll Need

  • Coat hanger
  • Silk vines, flowers and branches
  • Needle nosed pliers
  • Medium-gauge wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Stretch out a wire coat hanger into a circular shape using needle nosed pliers. Do not bend the coat hanger's hook, as you can use it later to hang up the finished wreath.

  • Place silk vines, flowers and branches against the top portion of the bent wire, and wrap a medium-gauge wire around it to secure the greenery onto the wire.

  • Add another bunch of silk greenery about 3 inches from the first, and wrap wire around it as before.

  • Keep adding on the silk greenery and wire until you have completed the wreath.

  • Cut off the excess wire using wire cutters.

  • Bend the clipped wires around the bent coat hanger to conceal it before hanging up the wire wreath.
