If you can't believe we are just 10 days away from Christmas, I'm right there with you. It's been on my mind to whip up a festive wreath for our front door at home for the past couple of months and well, life happened (and I guess owning and operating a small business took priority). So this week, I bumped this little D.I.Y. project to the top of my to-do list!
Changing out wreaths every season can get tedious, not to mention expensive! And since we are so close to Christmas, I decided to design a wreath that would be timeless and last through the Spring!
And in case you're reading along, thinking you don't have time to do this...I'll go ahead and reassure you that taking some time to slow down/craft in the midst of this crazy holiday season does wonders for the soul. Also, this project seriously only took 30 mins and looks adorable!
PROJECT CRAFT TIME: 30 MINUTES
- Metal wreath ring
- Faux evergreen garland
- Faux eucalyptus branch
- Faux white mum
- Floral wire + tape
- Hot glue gun
- Scissors + floral wire cutter
Start by cutting down your pieces of faux florals, and layering 5-6" pieces of the evergreen garland through the metal wreath ring.
Layer in the eucalyptus branch pieces (I chose to leave them off to the side to create an asymmetrical look), and add in your mum — or flower of your choice — using hot glue to anchor the wreath + add a pop of color against all the greenery!
Pro-Tip: Add in some live greenery or add colorful florals to let this wreath transition through the seasons!
