This Winter/Christmas wreath is almost free and very easy to make in an afternoon,
you can find all materials in nature,
only the gluesticks and some optional decorations cost a few bugs.

Your not forced to do this as a wreath, you could use the same technique for a rectangular or maybe a star shaped centerpiece.

Hope you like it :)

Step 1: Materials

Leave your house for once and get the needed stuff from mother nature.

14 ft ( 4metres)  of thin branches (diameter ca 0,5 inch and less) i chose willow because it growes back very quickly.
some small pinecones
moss (Cladonia rangiferina) dries very quickly, (if you can't find it there's some in your craft store :P)

Gluegun (3-4 sticks needed)
secateurs for the branches
pen and paper
protractor (what a word)

Optional for decoration:
gold/silver spray paint
pearl-garland and a candle
