Create a modern spring wreath that has elegant and eclectic style by repurposing baskets and faux floral stems with global elements.
Well hi there and welcome to day four of A Very Global Easter Series! The days and DIYs are flying by but there are still a couple of new Easter projects left before the series is complete. Today Casa Watkins Living and I are sharing how to make globally inspired Easter wreaths.
Yesterday I told you that all of my Easter DIYs this year were inspired by some pretty candlesticks in moody hues. But would also like to mention all of the materials for the DIYs were repurposed and items I already have so I haven’t spent a penny this week!
A Modern and Elegant Spring Wreath
(by repurposing what you already have)
What you need for a basket wreath:
- A flat bottom basket like a threshing basket or woven tray
- Leftover floral stems in the same color family
- Hot glue
- Wire cutters or scissors
My baskets were already painted for a renter friendly DIY wall decor idea when we lived in Japan but if you want to paint yours, just add water to acrylic paint to create a “wash” and brush it on.
How to put together an elegant and eclectic wreath:
- Use a long stem to fit in the curve or edge of the basket and secure in place with hot glue.
- Add in little pieces of floral with hot glue until it’s as full as you like.
- If you have them, succulents and a little bird make for fun elements but so would berries, pinecones, seashells, and other outdoor finds!
I’ve been good about recording video tutorials this week so watch me in action as I put this wreath together in minutes!
I’m super happy with how it turned out. If you are wondering, I used Scotch clear mounting strips to hold the two basket together securely and thread wire through the back of the larger basket for a hanger.
I’ve thinking about changing our door color but I love how this spring basket wreath pops against it!
It might have to stay up all summer too. 🙂
Stephanie also used a threshing basket for her Gypsy Boho Spring Basket Wreath! We are two peas in a pod I tell ya!
