This easy-to-make wreath took little time and money. Salvaged chicken wire was used to create petals around the wreath. Then we dressed the wreath with feathers and birds, but you can dress it with almost anything.
hot glue gun
salvaged chicken wire
flat wooden wreath form (12- or 6-inch)
white spray paint
22-gauge floral wire
Spray-paint the wooden ring and let it dry.
Cut chicken wire into wide strips using wire cutters. Make the strips long enough — about 12 to 14 inches — so you can bend them into big U-shaped petals.
Staple the strips in petal shapes all the way around wooden wreath form. If necessary, use a hammer to secure the staples.
