Hello all! It’s Anna from. Mymilsobeginning. I’m honored to be hosting here for the magnificent Danielle, as her family is growing! Today I will be sharing fun and simple easy wreath project with you. So let’s begin !
“Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.” – Khan
It is so important to make your living space yours! I’m learning that more and more. With my husband being in the Air Force we have to be able to pack up and move within a short notice. Moving is not the only factor making it difficult to have a cozy home, living in base housing is a factor as well. Living in base housing there are many restrictions, like renting, you are unable to do basic things to make a house a home. Such as painting the walls, hanging items within the home, and installing light fixtures. So what is a family to do to make their living quarters more appealing to the eye?
You get creative! I love holidays and when seasons change, so wreaths are a great way to express one’s adoration for season change! I’m going to share three easy steps to creating the perfect DIY wreath.
DIY DOOR WREATH
•Natural Twig Wreath or Foam Wreath
•Garland (I prefer Boxwood Garland.)
•Wooden Sign (optional)
- You will need your twig wreath, garland, and ties. I really like boxwood garland for this wreath because the contrast of light and dark green in the leaves! Plus it looks more lively than the other options I saw! The full and lively leaves of boxwood make your wreath look fuller. A full wreath, is a great wreath!
So to begin, lay out the twig wreath on a flat surface. Begin to lay the garland on the wreath. The garland will double up around the wreath, which gives it a fuller look. Once you have the garland placed on the wreath use your ties to hold it to the twig surface. I use exactly four ties around the wreath. Four is plenty to hold the garland in place.
2. You will need your flowers, this is my favorite part! Here is where you get to be creative. For this summer and Autumn I chose white garden roses and a long green branch to bring a little whimsical feel to the wreath!
Find the flower placement you desire for your wreath. Once you have the placement work your stem through the twig wreath so it will hold the flowers in place. It may take some bending to have the flower face forward. Don’t be scared to really bend those stems! That wire stem can take it!
For example, we love celebrating The 4th of July! I searched high and low for the right sign and finally found it !
See wasn’t that simple? Now our home looks and feels more welcoming. The most important thing is to make the wreath your own! I’m looking forward to fall so we can begin to decorate for Halloween! It’s one of our favorite holidays! It’s been a pleasure sharing with you all today. I hope you enjoy letting your creativity flow through trying this DIY project!
