In this video you will be shown how to make a wreath from birch rounds, white birch bark, and a coat hanger! This wreath is for any time of year, but it is especially beautiful during the winter months. You can display it indoors or out - I love how it looks on my garden gate!

Basic Materials List:

1. Around 12 birch rounds (size doesn't matter as long as they are notlarger than 5" in diameter and 3" thick). You can also use other treesfor the wooden rounds or even use large dowels and cut them to size. If you are interested in purchasing birch rounds for this projectplease drop me an email: gardeningwithbernadette(at)gmail.com

2. Sturdy wire coat hanger.

3. 10" piece of pliable wire. I used 14 gauge fence wire.

4. Large piece of birch bark, about a square foot.

5. Sprigs of greenery.

 

Basic Instructions:

1. Drill 1/4" holes in wood rounds.

2. String wood rounds onto coat hanger.

3. Attach bow made from white birch bark with pliable wire and one birch round.

4. Slip greenery into bow between birch bark and birch round.
