Willow branches can serve as a flexible and attractive material for wreath-making. Bare branches and branches sporting pussy willow growths will lend themselves to beautiful natural wreaths. A willow wreath, made from branches from a tree in your own yard or from fallen branches found on a walk through the woods, can serve as a year-round, long-lasting decoration on the front door that can be altered according to the season with the addition of a colourful bow.

  1. 1

    Remove all leaves from the willow branches and cut them to a uniform length of 7 inches with the garden shears.

  2. 2

    Separate the branches into bundles of five branches.

  3. 3

    Place one willow branch bundle along the left top portion of the wire wreath frame, with the bottom of the branches pointing downward.

  4. 4

    Wrap the bottom third of the branches with the floral wire on the wreath frame, keeping the wire on the paddle.

  5. 5

    Place a second bundle directly below the first bundle and wire the bottom of the bundle to the frame in the same manner, covering the first bundle's wires.

  6. 6

    Attach all bundles to the wreath frame by the same method until the entire frame is covered with willow branches. Attach a 6-inch loop of wire to the frame for hanging.
