Floral and craft wreaths made easy
Christmas Wreaths, dried floral wreaths and other floral craft displays are easily produced using Mitchell Wreath Rings. All of our products from clamp rings, to hand tie rings to Mitchell Handi Rings can be used for your floral projects.
The most important step in the production of floral craft wreaths is proper selection of wreath materials. A wide variety of materials can be used including evergreen boughs, dried flowers, grass, dried foliage and even materials as exotic as prickly pear cactus leaves (picks removed, of course). Once the wreath materials are selected, cutting them to a similar length is vital. This will allow you to build uniformly-sized handfuls to place on your wreath. If you are uncertain of proper length which to cut wreath material start by cutting it from 8” to 10” long. The larger the wreath you are building the longer the wreath materials should be cut. Nevertheless, 8” to 10” long is a good starting point. Contact us to learn more!
When using clamp rings with a wreath making machine, it is best to line the inside of the clips with a soft material such as moss, straw or dried grass. This cushions the dried materials as the clips are closed by the wreath machine.
