Simple is best, right? Many times I like taking this approach when it comes to DIY projects. As of late, all my DIY projects have revolved around greenery and flowers, because I tend to gravitate in that direction. But sometimes at the grocery store, I can’t make up my mind on what selection of flowers to get. I end up making repeated walks up and down the aisle trying to make a decision. In those moments, when too many minutes have gone by, and my husband is still waiting with the cart full of groceries, I go for the simple option–a bundle of leafy greens. And because being resourceful is always a win in my book, I used my husband’s dry cleaning hanger as the base for this wreath.
– 1 wire hanger
– 1 bundle of greenery
I used four branches of seeded eucalyptus and some pieces from a second type of greenery (I don’t
know the name of.)
– floral wire
STEP 1: Form the wire into a circular shape. It doesn’t need to be a perfect circle.
STEP 2: Break off small sections of the eucalyptus branches and group them in three. Slightly overlap the small pieces and attach to the hanger, using the floral wire.
STEP 3: Continue to overlap and attach small bundles of eucalyptus over the previous attached bundles.
STEP 4: You want to make sure all the small bundles of eucalyptus are going in the same direction. I started on the upper right hand of the circle, and added in a clockwise direction.
STEP 5: Continue adding the eucalyptus bundles until you’ve reached the point you started at.
STEP 9: Find a spot to hang the wreath.
