Give your home a festive feeling this holiday season with modern DIY wreaths. All you need is wire and some creativity to set up a pretty little wall display. If you like the look of fresh greenery, add some pine cuttings to your minimal arrangement, or you could also add some wonderfully scented eucalyptus or other winter foliage, like holly.

Step 4

When you've finished shaping the wire, trim off any excess with your pliers. Be sure to leave some overlap, as it will make the next step easier.

You could also use artificial greenery on your wreath; eucalyptus (faux or real) would be a perfect addition.
