Wreaths will always have a Christmas connotation, and I love nothing better than having one having on my door, inviting people into the fire side for a glass of hot, fragrant, mulled wine.
But I also love them as all year round decorations. You only need to make the frame once, and then replace the foliage and flowers to echo the seasonal change happening around you.
It’s a lovely way of keeping in touch with nature, and looks just stunning on your door, layed flat as a table centrepiece, swinging from the door handle, or slung over a chair back.
You will need:
- Lengths of beech, willow or ash branches with all foliage removed.
- Seasonal flowers and foliage
Create your wreath base by tying together your branches and making a rough circle. Take your time with it, and use your string to hold the ends in place. If its a little wonky don’t panic, you can even it out with your foliage.
Then thread your flowers and foliage in and around your twig frame. Use a little bit of florist wire to hold the stems in place if needed.
I always love to see your creations, so don’t forget to tag me in on Instagram.
