DIY Holiday Wreath
You are probably here after reading my blog on Holiday decor and event. I got carried away a little with decorating the hallway, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! The banner and the display bowl took about forty minutes to put together and a DIY wreath took about half hour to assemble. If your families are already over for the holidays, this is a fun activity to do together! Part I, right here, focuses on the wreath.
I am in love with the organic and clean look of this wreath! Did you make yours? If you haven't yet, you only need thirty minutes to put together something as simple and chic as the one shown below. Give it a try!
Materials you need:
Take two stem wires and fold it into a circle by tying the ends together. For a cleaner look, you can also use embroidery hoops. You can use more than one string if you care for a larger wreath, but I wanted mine to be reasonably small.
Take the glitter ribbon and start folding it around the stem in a spiral as you keep going in a circle until the entire string is covered. Note that I chose a sheer glitter ribbon, so the string will be slightly visible. You can use a clear string or thicker ribbon if you want the wire to be invisible.
Take the faux flowers (you can mix in long-lasting real flowers as well) and bend the end of the stem. Using the string thread to tie the flowers around the ring. Secure it with a few strings. Take the glittery baby's breath and stick it in with the flowers.
Take the bell or wind chime and tie it to the bottom of the ring so it hangs down from it. Hanging it using an adjustable wreath hanger or a magnetic wreath holder, and wallah! You've got yourself a sweet and classy DIY wreath!
