Hi there! How are you today? I’ve been having so much fun doing Fall DIYs that I jumped on the chance to join some other fabulous ladies for a Fall wreath blog hop hosted by Ariel at PMQ for Two! (Scroll down to see participating bloggers.)
I’ve been known to recycle wreaths and greenery so I used my dollar store eucalyptus wreath as a starting off point for an eclectic wreath with succulents and brass bells. *This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience.
Here’s what I used:
Eucalyptus and lamb’s ear stems
A few pinecones
I always trim my stems first, leaving 3-4 inches. Starting with the larger greenery, I just stick the stem into the wreath form, evenly spacing out each stem.
For pieces that need extra help staying in place, I wrap them with brown florist wire that camouflages perfectly with the wreath.
Then I add more layers of stems, 3-4 of each kind, until I get the fullness I want.
The last step is to embellish! I just used groupings of succulents, grapes, and attached some brass bells to add some global eclectic style.
It took all of 10 minutes to put it together! I love how it’s full and a little messy. I’ve been dying to adorn our beautiful front door with a wreath and I think this one is perfect for the wood tone.
Maybe my new little friend needs a name?
