    Next, prepare your greenery. Trim off ugly branches and leaves, then trim the branches so that they're roughly the same length.

    Pre-sort your greenery into bundles of roughly equal size. Try to include a mix of branches in each bunch.

    Lay one of your pre-prepared bundles on top of the coat hanger. Wrap floral wire around the base of the bundle several times, pulling tightly to ensure a firm hold. Do not cut the floral wire.

    And with that, your Australian native wreath is finished!
