Feeling inspired by this…. on pinterest.
I decided to make my own christmas wreath…..
These are my materials
- Reeded wreath
- Cotton flowers
- And florist wires
I wanted to do an asymmetrical wreath partly because I love the balance of the negative and positive spaces and of course, because it’s more economical!
In progress….. I find it very useful to hang the wreath up to assess how much it needs to be tweaked …
It started out like this
You don’t need to water this at all because the materials chosen are hardy and look beautiful even if it dries out.
I might add a pine cone to it or even a couple of cinnamon sticks to the wreath at the base to ‘anchor’ it and give it a little of a festive omph to the wreath!
The nice thing about having a fresh wreath is the smell it gives out at night when you come home……. It really sets the mood of Christmas even when we are in the tropics!
