• DIY Mini Window Wreaths

    mini window wreaths

    We have huge windows in our living room that have been begging me to be decorated for the holidays. So we have two fun projects with them I’m excited to share. First up, these mini window wreaths. Who says wreaths are only on doors or above fire places?mini natural wreaths

    Fresh greenery can be foraged or picked for cheap at your local florist. Today we’re making simple, small window wreaths with them. Here’s how they’re made…

    Supplies: Fresh greenery,  Also: thick wire, thin florist wire, wire cutters.

    For the fresh greenery, we love eucalyptus (thin with small buds), silver dollar (round, blueish), and ruscus (traditional green), and boxwood (small green). A quick note about quantity: We bought one bunch of each kind (around $5 each) and had more than enough for four wreaths. In fact, I invited over some ladies this past weekend to make more wreaths, we had so much extra.

    Step 1: For your wreath structure, cut a piece of wire to your desired size. That’s what’s nice about using wire and not those pre-shaped ones. You can make them any size you want! Maybe a mini one for the kitchen window, or hanging on a hall closet.

    Step 2: Use floral wire to secure the ends of the wreath.

    Step 3: Start adding small sections of greenery with 1-2 inches of floral wire. Don’t be scared to use some of the stem too, it’ll give a more natural look and cover up some of the wire beneath.

    Step 4: Continue all the way around.

    Step 5: Cut pieces of ribbon to desired length to hang. We first laid them on the floor to estimate the length for the windows.

    On a sidenote: Edie will NOT take off this vintage pink ‘party dress’ (as she calls it). We’ve already had to fix it a few times and it has no lining so she has to wear another dress underneath. Three year olds are the best and make Christmas that much more magical!

      Beautiful! Do you have any suggestions for where to buy good wreath florals/greens?

        Sorry, just read where you said it can be foraged or found at the florist. Maybe Trader Joe’s or grocery as well?
