Holiday Nature Wreath created by Laura from Roots and Feathers
Things from nature; ie: pine cones, leaves, seeds, feathers
Twine, lace, leather, yarn
Step 1. Gather your sticks. Try to find ones that naturally have a curve to them, it will help to form a circle easier. You can make this large or small depending on what size sticks you find or want. Gather other things from nature. This can be just about anything you find out in the wild that can be glued down, even delicate things like leaves can be used.
Step 2. Lay your wreath out in the shape that you want. Double up some sticks on it so that it is thick enough to have a good surface to glue things onto. Begin to glue all of your sticks together. Don’t worry too much about the glue showing because it will get covered up with trim and your nature pieces.
Step 3. Reinforce all of the points where your sticks are joined with twine, wire, leather or lace. You can be as minimal as you want or go crazy with fun details. This part is for function and beauty.
Step 4. Arrange and glue your pieces from nature and dried flowers if you are using them. Most craft stores have a section of flowers that are real dried flowers, not the fake plastic kind (although you could use those too if you want).
Step 5. Add a piece of yarn on top to hang your wreath from. And you’re done!
