This is my first time trying to write a tutorial, so please excuse my probable mistakes in advance. I hope you find my instructions clear enough :)
I started with the base, which I used exactly the same stitch numbers as Lucy's Springtime Wreath.
Then I started working on the "pretend-branches". Chain 20. Sl st into the 18th chain. *Ch 19, sl st into the 18th ch* repeat as long as you get the desired length depending on your yarn and hook choice.
When you finish crocheting the branches, start sewing the long line made of a few zillion chains on the base starting from the inner circle.
Go on sewing until your "pretend-branches" chains tour around the base 3 times.
If you're new to crocheting you might take a look at this website for basic crochet stitches.
