Excellent presentation.  Helpful and concise.  I can’t wait to make my own wreaths and I’m thinking that next year everyone will get a homemade wreath made from my lovely pines.

For Norm (previous comment):  I think they were hoping for some sort of basic craft skill in their viewers.  The frames and craft wire (which she mentioned specifically) can be purchased at any craft store.  Amounts and sizes will depend on what you’re making them for.  This is a simple starter vid not a full class.

I’ve never made a wreath. (I have made a few videos for work and advertising) I thought it was a great video with enough detail included to do it myself! Thanks for the idea and the quick tutorial! I especially liked the selections of different green combinations. A+

Norm, Thank you for your detailed feedback. The wreath frames and florist wire are available at local craft stores. We try to keep our videos short, therefore we did not have time to show Tricia doing each motion. The size of the wreaths for different locations is up to you—gardeners make decisions about size/scale all the time and this is a chance to use your creativity! Again, thank you for watching and commenting!

LOVE yours! I use grapevine wreaths for a fuller more natural look . I love your ideas with stuff to use together.
