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

  • When James and I first met (at a tight and bright birthday party) the first thing that I learnt about him was that he was a father. I’ve always known him as a dad and knew right away when I saw him interacting and parenting Ezra that he was marriage material. Love how he parents and fathers our children. Happy Father’s Day to this guy ☝🏻 love you babe! (Posting early cause I’m gonna try to stay off the phone tomorrow.. as a little Father’s Day gift) ☺️
  • Has everyone else noticed the overload of mosquitos right now? I can’t even handle it. I’m pretty sure if I wore this @gentlefawn shirt outside right now I’d be covered with bites in two seconds.

  • Believe it or not.. a few years ago I never liked coffee. 🙀 !! Yup! It wasn’t until I had Sophie that I started drinking coffee, and iced coffees were my go to.
•
@nespresso.ca has recently launched these limited edition capsules designed to create the tastiest iced coffees and lattes. I’m sharing how I made this one in my stories. Fun Fact: every Nespresso capsule is recyclable thanks to the aluminum they are made from, which also keeps the coffee so fresh! As of today, Nespresso now offers recycling solutions in all provinces and territories. If you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, the territories and Atlantic Canada, you can recycle your used capsules by sending them through the mail using the Red Bag at no additional cost! If you live in Vancouver, use the Green Bag and place it in your recycling bin. So easy! #partner #NespressoMoments #CWJWpartner
  • Just sat down for my last digital marketing class tonight. It’s not the easiest being a student and a mother but it has been so fulfilling growing my knowledge and skills. I’ve had a few of you message me to “teach you my ways” and feeling that with these classes behind me I’ll be able to do just that.
