To make

Seedhead wreath

To make the wreath use the chicken wire to form a flat-backed doughnut shape around the wire base. Secure with stub wire. Tightly stuff the cavity with moss. Cut clematis seedheads off the main stem, leaving stalks as long as possible. Push stalks into the moss as densely as possible. Add ivy flowers and mistletoe berries and tie a ribbon on the metal loop at the top.
