Miniature Evergreen Wreath Ornaments

With just a snippet from an outdoor evergreen you’re well on your way to making these miniature wreath ornaments. You can hang them on the tree, use them to decorate the outdoors, add them to gifts, or even use them as napkin rings! No matter how you use them they are a fun and simple project to bring the outdoors in. Miniature Wreath ornaments made with real greenery

I don’t really know why, but this holiday season I’ve been making everything in miniature. It started with these tabletop Grinch trees, a smaller version of the 9-foot Grinch tree I decorated previously. Then the tree got even smaller with a teeny-tiny, mushroom-decorated, outdoor, Christmas tree for the gnomes, who I also made in miniature. And now miniature evergreen wreaths. Make a miniature wreath from nature

Janit Calvo, the queen of all things miniature has an in-depth tutorial for making miniature wreaths and many ways to embellish them over on her blog. Please head over there to see her many ideas.

The idea for mine came from finding this floral wire with red berries on the ends. I thought it would be a quick and easy way to make plenty of decorations from garden clippings.Miniature wreath materials


Make it!

Start with a fairly pliable clipping from an evergreen. Leaves from cedar and false cypress are soft and easy to form. Bend the clipping around so that the tip overlaps the cut end. Wind floral wire tipped with red berries around the two ends to secure to make a real miniature wreath step (2)

Continue wrapping wire around the wreath until you have all the little leaves tucked to make a real miniature wreath step (3)

Trim the wreath with scissors to clean it up and make a nice round form. how to make a real miniature wreath step (5)

Add decorative elements like seed heads, miniature pinecones, and other things found around the garden with a hot glue gun.Finished miniature wreath with real evergreens, pinecones, and seed heads

You can also use ribbon to decorate the wreath. This raffia ribbon makes an easy bow as you simply need to tie it in a knot, then unfold the ends of the ribbon.Miniature wreath with raffia bow

You can also find ribbon that looks like tinsel, which I wound around another miniature wreath.DIY Miniature wreaths from real evergreen clippings
