This went together so fast and was so easy! You could make this out of any trailing plant. You just need a couple of things you probably already have.
Hot Glue Gun
Twig Wreath or any wreath form
Dowel Rod or stick
All I did was shove a dowel rod into a twig wreath form and secure it with a generous amount of hot glue. After it was set, I just broke off the dowel rod to the length I needed and shoved the whole thing in the center of the plant.
At this point I separated the ivy vines and began winding them around the wreath form. Every now and then I secured it with a few "twist ties" I made from this twiggy looking paper-wrapped wire stuff, which I loved because it blends right in. (Floral wire would work fine too.)
Add a pretty bow and you have a lovely living wreath that won't dry out and lose needles.
Add a wooden deer with a festive ribbon around his neck for that extra holiday decor cuteness factor.
How easy was that?! After the holidays, I'll just remove the bow and leave the wreath form in for a pretty ivy topiary. (I suspect it will make a grand reappearance sometime around Valentines Day.) Not bad for just using stuff I had. Zero dollars......perfect for my holiday budget!
I still have one or two more easy holiday decor magic tricks up my sleeve.
