Fresh WREATHs at Hy-Vee!
Hy-Vee’s mixed evergreen wreath is embellished with pine cones, gold tip cedar and blueberry cedar. It makes a stunning decoration on its own, but you also can add a bow or other decorations.
• Use ribbon or string to hang jingle bells from the center of the wreath, or use floral wire to attach them to the branches.
• Wrap battery-powered white or multicolor holiday lights around the wreath. Use floral wire to secure the cords and the battery pack to the back of the wreath.
• Add fresh or dried holiday flowers and plants such as globe thistle, pampas grass and lotus pods.
Make a real entrance this holiday season—with a memorable wreath
Use more than traditional holiday colors in your decor by creating a rainbow wreath. Gather ornaments in shades of yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, red and orange, then use floral wire to secure them to the evergreen branches of the wreath.
Gold star cookie cutters create a sophisticated holiday wreath. Spray-paint cookie cutters gold and let dry. Use floral wire to attach the shapes to the wreath. Remove pine cones from wreath if desired.
Dehydrate oranges and other citrus fruits by cutting them into thin slices and baking at 200°F until dried and wrinkled. Use a hot glue gun to create clusters of fruit slices and cinnamon sticks. Arrange and attach each cluster to the wreath with floral wire.
Use natural elements to breathe life into an evergreen wreath. Tie small bunches of lavender with floral wire. Tuck them between evergreen branches and use floral wire to secure them to the wreath.
