First, take your moss sheet and wrap it around your wreath ring. Then, wrap your florists’ wire clockwise around the moss, leaving gaps of 4cm evenly around the wreath. Pull the wire tightly so it’s good and secure.
When you have created a full circle, cut the wire and twist the ends together (think the top of a coat hanger).
Cut your stems so they’re 8-15cm long,’ advises Amelia. ‘Lay them in groups of 2 to 3 stems, staggering down so the tips lay slightly below each other. You’ll need to make about 18 groups to fill your wreath.’
Take your first group of stems and lay them diagonally across the wreath ring. Use more wire to secure the base of the stems to the wreath ring – but don’t cut the florists’ wire from the spool! All will become clear…
