I am getting a lot of mileage out of my white base wreath I bought at Target several months ago. With it I’ve been able to make a Magnolia Leaf Wreath for the fall.
I made a Feather Wreath for Thanksgiving.
Now it was time to give the wreath an injection of Christmas spirit. I removed the feathers, but left the green nuts on it. I had a green fabric leaf wreath that I made out of some floral filler stalks. All I did was twist 4 of the stalks into a circle shape and secure with a few pieces of floral wire.
I set my white base wreath inside the green leaf circle.
To secure the two together, 1) I fed some of the base wreath twigs under the leaf wreath and 2) twisted them over to hug the green leaf wreath.
That couldn’t be any easier! No glue, no mess.
I compared two different ribbons next to my wreath and ultimately chose the black and white one.
Tied a pretty bow and stood back to admire.
Hmmm, I like it, but it just wasn’t feeling Christmasy enough, so I quickly tucked some red floral sprigs with teeny bells on them into the wreath and gently curved them to match the shape of the wreath.
I’m going to try to use this wreath all year and will be sure to share the transformations with you.
