I got this pile of tree trimmings at the Christmas tree stand from the Boy Scouts for a donation of 5 dollars
Clippers for trimming tree branches
ware some kind of utility glove so You don't get sap on your hands
Trim pieces like this and put in piles of size I made 4 wreaths with this pile of trimmings
Once You have two piles of similar size trimmings Cut a piece of wire and wrap the branches together. Use a thick wire
Here is one that all wrapped up, I trimmed it later to make it even on both sides
Finished with a bow and a pinecone wrapped in with wire.
Here I added a single piece of ribbon for hanging
