HOLIDAY WREATH DIY
The Holidays are my most beloved time of year. As a florist, we are advocates for bringing the outdoors in. During the Holiday’s we are decking the halls with garlands, mistletoe, and wreaths. –kristen from moon canyon design
Here is a very simple and fun wreath to make.
what you’ll need:
• grapevine wreath base
• balsam fir
• really any evergreen will do!
Start by creating your outer edges and working in towards your center. All you have to do is cut the pieces of green and tuck the into the grapevine base. The base is twisted up enough that it will hold the branches really well. No need for messing around with wire.
I really like asymmetry and so really there is no wrong way here! I like to keep the greens long and let them reach out and be wild.
It’s nice mix a bunch evergreens with different textures and shades of green. This creates such a wonderful winter forest palette. You can accent with ribbon or pine cones for an extra holiday burst.
With the extra bits and clippings from the wreaths I made these holiday corsages. Any chance I get to adorn myself with florals, I take it!
These corsages are basically petite posies tied with wire and accented with ribbon. If you have flowers that you want to add to the evergreens feel free to tie those in there as well. Pin them on and you have a beautiful fresh accent to your holiday look. Plus the scent is seriously amazing!
