Here’s what you’ll need:
Freshly cut sprigs of your favorite greens
Floral foam ring (Oasis makes a great product)
Here’s how to do it:
1. Gather a bunch of your favorite greens. You’ll want to trim them to be all of relatively uniform size and shape. We used camellia leaves from Paula’s yard, but you can use a variety of greens, including different kinds of pines.
2. Prepare a floral foam ring according to its packaging directions. I prefer to soak my rings in a large utility sink, or bathtub. It’s best if you set the ring on top of the water, and wait for the foam to naturally sink in the water. Do not forcibly submerge the ring.
Takeaway tip: Mix up the greens and foliage that you use in your wreath for a look that’s completely your own.

I love reading about your family and seeing your pictures. I respect the fact that you are teaching your son's family values because so much of that seems to be going by the wayside anymore..maybe someday we will meet and by that time your son's may even have their own cooking show.lol..wishing you lots and lots of love from this country girl's kitchen to Brooke Deen's kitchen of love.

Love this idea. I want to do this for my sister n law for the new addition of the family. What a wonderful way to celebrate a new baby in the family.
