The days are getting longer and Easter is just around the corner. It’s time to bring spring into your home.
Follow the new trend by having Easter and spring wreaths in your home. Hung from mirrors, doors or walls they’ll definitely set the scene for Easter entertaining.
A fresh wreath is always a treat, but when it smells even better then it looks it’s a must have.
HOW TO MAKE AN EASTER WREATH
What you need:
- Reel Wire
- Wire cutters
- Birch Twigs or any thick and bendy twigs collected from your garden or on your daily walk.
- Dried Flowers, Silk flowers, flowers from an old arrangement or foliage.
We’ve used the following – do have a play with whatever you might have to hand:
- Birch Twigs
- Lagurus Ovatus (Hare’s Tail Grass)
- Pink Rhodanthus
- White Larkspur
Start by forming your wreath base with the birch branches. Bend them into a circle and wrap the reel wire around as you go. Once you have done this all the way around you can cut the wire and secure it in place.
Add bunches of twigs to your base, let them roam free and stick out on the sides to create movement and texture. Use the reel wire to secure them.
Now that you have a base of intertwined twigs insert your flowers and foliage into these. You can focus your flowers on one area or all around your wreath – it is completely up to you.
Add some moss in places for extra texture. Secure with the reel wire.
Hang it on your wall or door and enjoy your everlasting wreath over Easter and for years to come.
