How to make a floral Easter wreath

Cut a length of wire and bend around twice into a hoop shape. Twist each end together at the top to create a loop for hanging and snip off any excess.

Starting with the greenery, place each stem on one at a time, fixing with small lengths of wire. Twist around the main wire hoop to secure.

Continue with the flowers, finishing with the rose. Cut the stem very short and pierce a length of wire through the thickest part at the back, fixing the wire to the hoop. Add a miniature vintage decoration in the same way.
