Last week I found these greenery branches down in the basement. I used to have them in vases on the mantel, but didn't envision doing that again so I made a wreath out of them!
I bent a wire coat hanger into a circular shape and twisted the ends to close. Then I laid out my greenery around it to make sure I liked the shape and direction that it was going and started wrapping the stems with wire around the base. And wrapped them, and wrapped, them, and looked at the wreath, then wrapped more sections of them and then wrapped random sections to make sure it was sturdy enough to go through a couple of blizzards this winter/spring.
And here is my result!
I think it looks so pretty and will be perfect for March and April as well!
These branches are very inexpensive at Joann's, especially with one of their coupons. The floral wire is inexpensive as well. I'm pretty sure I spent less than $5 on everything when I purchased the supplies last year.
Every time I post about wreaths that I made for our front door I get emails about how I hung it without an over-the-door hanger. The door is metal so I would NEVER nail anything into it. I use a magnetic hook! You can get them in a 2 pack at Lowe's or any hardware store for a few bucks! And they are nice and sturdy! The hook is much tighter than an over the door hanger hook and so the wreath STAYS put.
