I was sitting out on my deck the other day enjoying the birds at my bird feeders when I looked down at the mess of twigs scattered all over. I am constantly sweeping them off the deck. We have several huge trees that hang over our deck. I've always liked those twig wreaths and decided I might try making my very own.

I used a heavy rusty wire shaped into a 4" circle. You could also use a old wire coat hanger.
Gather up bunches of twigs that are around 6" or 7" inches long. Wrap with rusty wire very tightly. I like to add a few tiny thin twigs for that wispy look. I ended up making around 17 bunches for my wreath.
Then start attaching the bunches one at a time with your rusty wire, laying them horizontal with the wire frame you made. Once you get one attached lay the next bunch slightly down a little on top of your first bunch. And so on and so forth.
You then end up with a wreath that is about 11" across! You could make these any size.
