You will need a pair of pruners.
You will also need a package of ornament holders.

Place your greens together in a cluster, and then secure the group by using one of the ornament holders.
I selected this wreath made of ornaments from Target. I like the contrast between the leaves and the ornaments.
Next, place your cluster of plant clippings on the back of the wreath. Then use an ornament holder to secure the leaves to the wreath. Continue this process until the entire wreath has a backing of the greenery.
Then hang the wreath on your front door.
Next, take a rope and drape it around the door.
Continue to create clusters of the plant material and use the ornament holders to tie them to the rope.

|In this photo the door has greenery completely around it.|
But wait! There’s more…two packages of white lights.
|The white lights have been strung around the door.|
Now the door glows.
Next, I added two 4-foot long garlands also purchased at Target.
Oh my gosh! Looking Good!
Next, I used ornament holders to add more ornaments to the greenery
I was very pleased with myself!
|From start to finish this project took me three hours.|
|This was time very well spent.|
