Summertime DIY: Twig & Floral Woven Wreath

On a particularly cloudy and cool June afternoon, I made my way to a wooded trail, lined with magical Pennsylvania wildflowers. A perfect day– Just me, my mum, our big puffy poodle pup and the wild-side of our town.  We walked & talked for miles getting lost in the enchanted green landscape, picking bunches of pale blossoms from the trail-side.  I cooled off with a lemon water, was greeted by my sweet black cat & got right to crafting. To start,  I cut the blossoms leaving about 2 inches of stem. (So keep in mind to pluck them longer than that.)  I divided the blossoms by their color, and laid out how I wanted to arrange them on the wreath. I poked each stem between twig stems and pushed them in to the length I liked.

A little secret (Shh!)  I used a pre-woven wreath base so I had more time to wander & pluck the perfect Wild Blue Phlox, Goldenrod, Bluet Blossoms, Buttercups, and Ivory shrub Accents.  If you have the time to weave the wreath yourself, Here’s an excellent step-by-step tutorial on how to get started.

I styled this blossom-studded wreath as a centerpiece with candles and cacti, and as a wall hanging to adorn your holiday hang-out space.  Enjoy the opportunity to be one with nature and give this DIY a try!

Tunes to jam to, craft to, and hang to.
