♥ Spring Wreath from Scratch
Hey Lovelies! I love making wreath’s, they just give that little extra to your home. And the fun thing is that you can make them however you like. Since we had some cuttings from the garden that I didn’t wanna waste. I decide to make a wreath with it. And I’ll gonna try to explain to you how to make your own. And also give you an idea how you can decorate it with links to tutorials I used.
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ 100-200cm Twigs, preferably those that are flexible, like from a Willow. Freshly cut twigs are easier to work with. It depends on what you go for on how many twigs you need, but make sure to have plenty.
♥ Pruning Shears.
♥ Things to decorate, like flowers, greens, succulents, etc.
Start with one of you longest twigs, keep your hand at the thick side and bend this one carefully in a circle to the size you want. Mine is about 22cm. When you are happy with the size, wrap the end of the twig around itself. This way it will hold it shape, sorta, without the need of using glue or wire.
Don’t worry if your circle isn’t perfect, you can adjust that along the way.
Now start adding more twigs, I always added the thick side of the twig, at what you choose to be the back, and wrap it around the base circle you made. If you keep the same flow as the first one, you get one like I made. But you can also make it more messy if you prefer. Let’s just have fun and see what you can make with materials from nature!
Like I said, along the way you can adjust the shape into a more perfect circle, keep checking what your wreath needs. Add twigs until you are happy with the size and thickness of the whole thing.
And that’s basically it for a basic wreath! it’s not that hard, just need to be careful not to break the twigs. But practice makes perfect!
For decorating you can use anything that suits you, I chose to make flowers from felt and add those. Since it’s spring, I wanted to use more pastel tints and flowers that would bloom now. These are the ones I made, some kind of Rose, Anemone and Daisies.
Here are the tutorials I used, but as usual, I didn’t really followed them along and just modified to whatever I wanted xD. I’m always this person that just start something and then follow along my own rules. Haha.

I hope you will have fun making your own wreath!! I love to make things from scratch and be happy with the end result. Plus this really makes you home looks happier!
Have a wonderful day!
