Step 1: Prepare the foam ring

Take the florists' ring and soak it in cold water for one hour. Remove. Bind florists' wire around the ring several times in one spot and secure it at the back with another piece of wire, leaving an excess of 50cm for hanging on the door. Trim all the ivy into 8-10cm sprigs.

Step 2: Push in pieces of ivy

Arrange the ivy sprigs so the leaves all lie in one direction, then push the stalks into the foam. Continue inserting the ivy until the foam is evenly covered on one side and the wreath looks bushy. Make sure that the edges of the ring are concealed, too, with ivy extending slightly outwards over the rim.
