Skill Level: Novice
Time: 2-3 hours

Tools and Materials
- Short garden hose
- Pair of garden gloves
- Hand trowel
- Hand cultivator
- 2 — 3-inch terra-cotta pots
- Clear cable ties
- Any other gardening items you’d like to add to the wreath
Coil your garden hose to the size that you would like your wreath to be. This is going to be the base of your wreath.
Secure the hose with cable ties.
Decide where you would like each ornament on your wreath. Imagine the circle of hose is a clock face, and place the larger items-the trowel, cultivator and gloves-at approximately 12 o’clock, 4 o’clock and 8 o’clock.
The terra-cotta pots should be placed at more-or-less opposite ends of the circle.
Fill in the spaces with smaller items, such as seed envelopes, plastic flowers, plant tags or anything else that means “gardening” to you.
Tie each item onto the hose with twine.
Take care to secure the heavier items with extra twine. You might even want to add a cable tie for extra strength, and cover it with twine.
Hang your Garden Hose Wreath on your front door, above your potting table, or anywhere else you want to proclaim your love of gardening.
