Hi there! Today, I’m sharing something a little different. My front door usually has a new wreath for each season and/or holiday reflecting colors and textures for each time of the year. Do you enjoy changing out your door decor often? Before I started blogging over three years ago, I was really religious about it. Now that I spend more time fixing up our rental and decorating on in the inside, I’ve left my winter wreath out all Spring. Summer begins next week and I have to say, I still LOVE that wreath and think it’s works well for all seasons! The winter tutorial was a contributor post for Over the Big Moon last December but I’m sharing the fun DIY with you.
Here’s what you need:
(apart from the feathers, you should be able to find these items at your local dollar store or yard!)
grapevine wreath form
5 eucalyptus stems
gold ball picks (and a black sharpie/pen)
To make the gold ball picks more dramtatic, draw black dots with a sharpie all over the top halves. They will add a fun punch of color to the wreath!
Clip off the stems about one inch below the eucalyptus leaves. Place and arrange on wreath by placing all of the bunches in the same direction evenly spaced out.
Tuck the stem into the grapevine wreath. Secure long branches of leaves with florist wire. Leave some out for an organic shape.
This is probably the first time I haven’t used hot glue on a wreath y’all! Wrap a piece of wire around the bottom of a pinecone and attach to the top of the wreath. Create a cluster of 3-5 (depending on the size).
Space out your feathers and stick them into the wreath form and eucalyptus. Secure with wire where needed. Place and secure a few spotted gold picks. Add a bow at the top near the pinecones and you’re finished!
I’m so pleased with the way she turned out. It might be my favorite wreath yet! I love the pinwheel shape of the leaves and feathers.
Thanks for stopping by today friends,
