Weaving wreaths is a creative, intentional way to bring the wilds of the outside to your home. Whether it’s to hang on your front door, above the mantle or maybe in your washroom (it’s your world, do as you please), your base-form dictates the wreath’s overall look. A double or quadruple wire frame will support lush, full materials similar to the holly, spruce and cedar composition. A single wire frame, such as the minimalist circle with Tillandsia and succulent, will be airier. Building on the texture of a dried grapevine base makes for the most rustic interpretation, similar to the mixed-evergreen piece. Scout evergreens, bare branches, shrubs, and natural curiosities like feathers, stones and mushrooms that you’d like to weave into your wreath. You’ll need a few other supplies, which you can find at your local craft store, flower market or Amazon.
