Tools and Materials


Coiling the hose to create a garden hose wreath


Step 1

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.


Using a cable tie to secure a garden hose for a garden hose wreath


Step 2

Secure the hose with cable ties.


Adding gardening items to a DIY garden hose wreath



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.


Tying down gardening items to a garden hose wreath


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.
