Wreaths aren’t just for the holidays! They can spruce up any space for any season and look great all year around. Plus, they are very expensive to make and a fun craft project!
I’ve seen wreaths made of beads, fabric, wire, tissue paper even glass and tile, but some of the loveliest wreaths I’ve seen are those made of natural materials. Most of your materials can be found in your backyard, local park, or any natural setting.
For less experienced crafters and weavers, you can start out with purchasing a pre-made wire wreath form or frame using heavyweight wire.
For more experienced crafters, you can begin by finding a bendable vine, loose branches or wheat straw.. You can easily weave these together and secure them using a hot glue gun.
Next, take a walk into nature, allow your eyes and your intuition to guide you. Begin collecting any flowers, pinecones, feathers, leaves or really anything that isn’t too heavy in weight to intertwine or glue onto your wreath creation. Whether you are using a wire or natural base, you can add any of these materials on your beautiful new decorative wreath.
Allow the process to be fun and fluid. Allow your imagination to guide you. Your finished product will reflect a piece of mother nature, your own personal style and breathe new life into your living space!
