Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.
