Step 1

Collect a wire frame, 22 gauge floral wire, hot glue gun and ribbon from a hobby store.

 

Step 2

Gather plant material: Evergreens, grasses and dried flower/seed heads work well.

 

Step 3

Next, make small uniform bundles of plant material to attach to frame with wire.

 

Step 4

Wrap wire around bundle and then wrap bundle onto frame. Continue the process around the entire frame.

 

Step 5

Attach other material with wire or (if small items) hot glue. Finish it off with a decorative bow.

 

Step 6

Create a hanging loop by twisting two pieces of floral wire and attaching to the back of the frame. Hang and enjoy!
