DIY natural wreath

Today I made my first ever, evergreen wreath! 🤩

After several years, my artificial wreath finally gave out, littering the area where it was stored with plastic needles and Styrofoam berries 😢 So I took it apart, threw away the fake branches and berries and saved the metal frame with the idea I’d make my own wreath at some point.

Well, thanks to a heavy snowstorm last weekend, a large branch of my neighbor’s juniper tree broke off, giving me lots of natural evergreen material to use! 😃

I cut off some branches with pruning shears then tied them to my metal frame using jute twine. I then attached some foraged pine cones with metal ornament hooks. For additional scents and texture, I stuffed in some dried lavender and pine needles from my yard.

I’m happy with how my wreath turned out though my hands are still itching from the prickly juniper branches 😜 When I make next year’s wreath, I’ll look for balsam, cedar or pine branches instead 🌲
