With the weather being so bad I decided that I wanted to some activity especially for Ryan. We made this minimalistic Scandinavian wreath. Perfect for winter and even for Christmas. It was a last minute call so improvised a bit, however I was quite satisfied with the result.
What you need:
- A string hanger
- Floral Wire
- Evergreen branches
You should make the hanger round. I didn’t do this well enough because of time (Cenzo was napping). I didn’t have floral wire because of my last minute decision to do this. I used some regular strings.
Secure the branches around the hanger making sure it looks full.
I also made a wreath of the branches of a pussy willow.
Divide the branches into two. Secure the branches facing outwards so that you can wrap the bottom of the branches. After that fold them together. Make sure you do it softly not snapping the branches.
I hung the pussy willow and placed the wreath with the made of pine branches. Placing some tiny pussy willow branches to make it more of a unity.
Unfortunately we do not have a place to hang it neatly in front of a white wall. I thought the process of creating something was far more important. Next year, in our new home, we will have a place for it. Love to make one with eucalyptus.
Ryan was full of content making this simple wreath. I like minimalistic look and I don’t mind the string as it has a natural feel. Next year I would love to make it again. Maybe making it a bit harder as Ryan will have even better motor skills.
