Lately, I’ve been obsessing over green plaids. I mean, come fall I obsess over all plaids but this year green is just my color. So when I recently decided to make a winter wreath, I naturally gravitated straight towards the green plaids. I wanted a wreath that would last beyond Christmas, so nothing too holiday-focused and I decided on a mix of the green plaid, evergreen branches, pinecones and white flowers.
I chose a yard of the plaid material that I wanted and also bought a wreath form, faux branches & pinecones and some felt to make the flowers.
I started by cutting the material into 9 inch long strips down the length of it.
Fold under one long edge of your material and pin it to your wreath form on an angle.
Wrap your material around the wreath form, keeping one edge folded under (to hide the raw edges), then pin your strip down when you reach the end. To start another strip, repeat by overlapping over the ending pin from the first strip. I used 2 strips to cover my wreath form, but use what you need to cover yours. When you’ve completely covered your form, pin the end of the strip where it can either be hidden by the flowers & branches or on the back of your wreath.
To create the flowers, I loosely followed THIS tutorial.
I laid out the branches and flowers as I wanted them on the wreath, then hot glued them (HEAVILY) to the wreath! I didn’t add a hanger onto my wreath, but you could add a loop of the material to the top back of your wreath to hang it.
And there you have it! Super simple and I just love it!
