Crafts blogger Michelle from The Purple Pumpkin Blog created a festive fern and cranberry version of our rosemary wreath place cards. Here’s her step-by-step instructions:
You will need
- Stems from a small fern or conifer tree, 12-15cm long
- Dried cranberries
- Thin wire
- Red raffia or ribbon
- Scissors (decorative scissors optional)
- Green card
- Silver marker pen
Three stems should form one wreath. Cut 8cm lengths of wire and wrap around the bottom end of each stem. Leave around 3cm at the end.
Bind one end to the top of another stem, and continue around until you have formed a wreath. You may have to bend the stems gently to ease into shape.
Cut 6cm pieces of wire, and thread a few dried cranberries into the middle. Bend over and fix to the wreath by twisting at the back. You can use the cranberries to hide any wire that may show through.
Cut a length of raffia or ribbon and wrap around the wreath into a neat bow.
Cut a square from the green card and fold in half to form a name card. I’ve used crimped-edged scissors but regular ones will work just fine. Write a guest’s name on the card and place in the middle of the wreath.
