Hey! I’m stopping in with a quick tutorial for you today on how to create natural wreath. I get so many people who say that “they could never do that” when they see something that I created. And I always think and say, yes you totally can! I believe that if there is a will there is a way, and honestly most of the projects I do aren’t that difficult and it makes them all so much easier if you love doing it.
I love making wreaths, and changing them out around our house all the time. I made this wreath, for free, if you can believe it. I literally just went outside my front door and cut branches off the bushes. I’m not really sure what kind of bushes they are, but they look enough like boxwood to me that I got the idea to cut some branches and make my own.
Boxwood wreaths are so popular right now, and you can get one at Target that is the same size as the one that I made, for like $45. So yea, I’ll take my free wreath any day. I already had the grapevine wreath on hand, but you can get them for a few dollars at most craft stores. I think mine is from Hobby Lobby but Amazon has them too.
Heres a quick how-to make your own!
10 Minute Natural Wreath Tutorial
- Grapevine wreath
- Natural branches- like I said I cut some from the bush in my yard, maybe you have one similar, or someone you know does. Maybe your neighbor does and you would be doing them a favor by trimming it up a bit for them?
- You could also use fake branches that you can buy at a craft store if you can’t find natural accents
- Embellishment or ornament that you would like to add
How to Create a Natural Wreath in 10 Minutes or Less
- Lay your grapevine wreath flat and start at the bottom in the center by adding your beaches one by one.
- I like to start on one side and add branches half way up and then do the same on the other side so it looks even. Then rotate it and start at the bottom and go up the sides.
- Then you just fill in the branches around the whole wreath until it is to your desired fullness.
- Add any embellishment or ornament that you would like. Or if you want to keep it plain and fresh I love that too. I wanted to add something for the holidays so I added a cute little brass horn that I found at the thrift store.
- The last step is to find somewhere to hang it! If you have a nail or hook you could hang it on that. The grapevine wreaths are super nice because you could also tie a little string or ribbon on the back and hang it from that.
I hung ours on our front door. I am going to keep our exterior decor really natural this year for the holidays and I think its super cute and inviting. What do you think? I’m telling you its so easy to create something like this if you just give it a try!
Oh and just a little tip if you do plan to use something natural, spray it with water every couple of weeks to keep it looking fresh!
