To speed up the process of making this beautiful wreath, you can use a metal hoop and artificial or dried flowers for filling the hoop entirely. Mix lots of greenery, and flowers, and if you light strings. Just make sure to fill the wreath evenly so there won’t be left any empty space.
Additionally, you can add a ribbon, but that might be too much, so keep it simple and use it all year round to dress the front door.
