DIY horse wreath in less than 30 minutes (with instruction video)

Most horse lovers like to decorate their stalls in December and bring some Christmas spirit into their barn. For years I wanted to have a horse wreath but I thought this would be very complicated. Until I decided to go for it! It turned out to be only a 30- minute (no mess) Do-It-Yourself project.

This project is great for adult horse lovers and is also very suitable for children (supervised). You can make this wreath in 6 simple steps. You can find the instruction video at the end of this blog.
