The Pohutukawa is the iconic New Zealand Christmas tree, the arrival of these stunning flowers is the sign that summer is on its way. Try out this quick and super simple wreath DIY to get that Christmassy feeling.
If you are not in NZ try this DIY with other plants growing in your area.
What you will need:
- Pohutukawa Flowers
- Embroidery Hoop
- Florist Wire – I used 26 gauge green wire
- Scissors or Wire Cutters
Take the outer ring off the embroidery hoop then select your first Pohutukawa flower – trim the stalk and lower leaves if required.
Place your first flower onto the hoop fixing it in place with short lengths of your wire.
Continue layering the flowers slightly on top of one another until the ring is fully covered.
