What You'll Need:

How to make a stick wreath:Step 1: Find about ten long, thin branches in your yard. Soak them in warm water overnight. The branches will become soft so that you can bend them. Step 2: The next day, twist and braid the branches together in a circle. Overlap several branches around the circle of sticks to secure it. Step 3: Bring the branch ends together, and overlap them. Tie a piece of silver cord around the ends to hold the wreath in place. Tie more silver cord in a few spots around the wreath. Step 4: Tuck dried flowers into the branches.
