Wreath making kit: the best to buy

Wreath making kit supplies

Before you get started making your own wreath, you might like to buy some supplies to help you along the way. Although your kit will come with everything you need to make your wreath beautiful, you'll need some basic tools and perhaps some extra decorations, it is Christmas after all!

Niwaki Forged Snips

Niwaki forged snips

These forged snips from Japanese tool makers Niwaki would be the perfect accompaniment to a wreath making kit as well as being a super useful gardening tool for the rest of the year. They would be great for trimming foliage or cutting your own extra bits and bobs from the garden. These are drop forged from a single piece of metal making them incredibly strong and durable and the red handles mean that they won't get easily lost amongst the greenery on your potting bench. Take a look at our secateurs recommendations for other handy tools.

Dried Orange Slices

Dried orange slices

Dried orange slices make a lovely addition to any Christmas wreath. Lots of wreath kits come with dried fruit slices, but if yours doesn't then it may be worth picking up a packet. They add colour and a festive scent to wreaths and can also be used in other decorations around the house such as tablescapes and mantelpiece garlands. These thick-cut orange slices are affordable and if you have any left over, you could also use them to decorate your Christmas presents. Take a look at our handy guide on wrapping Christmas presents with natural materials for inspiration.

Natural Twine

Natural garden twine is always handy to have around, but would be especially useful to buy before you start making your own wreath. If you're buying one of the wreath kits below, it will most likely come with some twine or floristry wire, but it's always good to have a little extra in case you make any mistakes.
