Quick Answer

Making a wreath out of fresh evergreen tree cuttings requires some basic equipment, including scissors that can cut  through tree branches, fresh evergreen tree branch clippings, thin craft wire and a pair of wire cutters. After these materials are assembled, the cuttings can be bundled together and formed into a wreath shape.

Full Answer

Those people who are not confident in their ability to shape Christmas tree cuttings into a circular shape may want to use a plain, pre-made wreath or other pre-formed circular shape to help guide them. However, the process of shaping the cuttings into a circle is fairly easy. The individual branches can be bunched together and wrapped with wire, and these bunches can then be arranged into a circular shape and connected with wire, which can the be bent into the desired shape. Bundling the branches prior to joining them together gives the wreath a fuller shape and makes the wreath easier to form, making it possible for the crafter to manipulate the shape of the bundle into a curve shape to be added to a circular wreath.

    How do Australians celebrate Christmas?

    A:

    Christmas traditions in Australia closely resemble those in other countries of the British Commonwealth, although most are adjusted slightly to take advantage of the summer weather Australia enjoys in December. Christmas trees and lights are still the standard, but Christmas dinner may take the form of a barbecue on the beach instead of an enormous meal eaten indoors. Seafood is also common alongside the traditional ham and turkey.
