DIY Large Floral Wreath for Under Ten Dollars
Comments Off on DIY Large Floral Wreath

     I have a little bit of a problem, I am a major procrastinator. I honestly don’t know how it hasn’t come around to bite me in the bum more, but some how… even though I procrastinate, I can almost always still pull it together. This DIY Large Floral Wreath was something that I procrastinated making for an event, and on the day before I pulled through.

As I chatted to my mother-in-law about how I needed to create a photo backdrop for the event that I was a part of the next morning, I had an idea. We were chatting around a pile of faux flowers I picked up from the dollar store and a white sheet that I had just picked up at the thrift store.

Originally, my idea was to pull off the faux flowers from the flower strand and hot glue gun them sporadically around the white sheet. I like this idea, but it wasn’t feeling like the right thing for this event.

I stared out into the pouring rain, fixated on a bare bush of long thin twigs. That is when I said out loud, “what if I braided a bunch of those branches into a massive oval?” She encouraged me to go for it and, I am sure glad that I did!

(This wreath was inspired by large wreaths I have seen on Treasures and Travels IG page over the holidays)

DIY Large Floral Wreath

Materials

  • Garden Clippers
  • Thin Wire
  • Faux Flowers
  • Faux Ivy
  • 15 (approx) 1 metre long twigs (thin and pliable)

Directions

  1. On the floor lay out how you want your faux flowers to look and the size that you want your wreath.
  2. Start with three pieces of your branches. I staggered each one to start at a different point on the branch so that when I finished I could weave in the edges to have a smooth finish.
  3. As you get to the end of your braid add in one brand at a time. Where one branch ends add in another one, use the wire to hold the ends in place. Alternate the ends from thin to thick.
  4. Every so often lay it over top of your faux flower set up to see how close you are getting to reaching your desired size.
  5. Once you get it the size that you want, start weaving the branches into the starting point to complete your circle/oval.
  6. Use your wire to wrap around your faux flowers and ivy into place where you like.
  7. Hang up where you want and voila

  • We got the photos done but failed at ordering any cards, I feel like I might not be the only one behind on that note this year.. we’ve only received one holiday card so far (.... or maybe that means something else 🤣🤭) haha!! Were you on the ball and got your cards out or are you on my side still contemplating if there’s enough time??
  • My mother-in-law made all these wreaths from grape vines she grew in her garden, I added a little greenery. Super simple, super cute!

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.
