I love the way North Americans’ decorate their homes during the festive season. I especially love wreaths. After seeing a couple of hanging wreaths on Pinterest, I decided to make my own. And it’s easier than you think.
Everything I used came from my local discount store. Sprays of holly, lengths of tree trim, assorted christmas decorations, ribbons, mini pegs and fairy lights.
I made a circular frame using wire then threaded the foliage around and through the frame. A week after I made the frame, I found some wire wreaths in one of those pop-up Christmas decorations shops - so you can buy a ready-made one if you don’t want to make your own.
Drape fairy lights around the foliage several times making sure there’s enough cord to reach a powerpoint. Use thick ribbon to hang your wreath.
I have exposed beams over my table which made the hanging process easy. Otherwise, you’ll need to make sure the wreath is securely fitted to your ceiling.
Cut thin ribbon different lengths and thread through the end of your decorations. Use mini pegs to secure in place.
Flick the switch and your wreath will add that extra touch of sparkle to the night. Below are a couple of images from Pinterest that I use for inspiration.
A beautiful hanging wreath can be used as a decorative feature for any occasion - why wait for Christmas?
Enjoy your creative life, Jules
