If you are a garden lover, you might love the idea of filling your home with greenery and flowers from your yard by making a festive wreath or two. In addition to adding an interesting focal point above your fireplace, wreaths are also a fun way to add a little visual interest to front doors, hanging mirrors, and empty walls.
For this reason, H&N Floral, Gifts & Garden keeps a large variety of plants, topiaries, and fresh flowers in stock in their Texarkana, Texas, shop. Here are three tips for making your own festive wreath, so that you can bring a little of your garden indoors.
Use Items From Your Yard
Before you head to the store to buy dried leaves, grasses, berries, or pinecones for wreaths, take a walk through your backyard. Oftentimes, you can find beautiful foliage and flowers to clip for free that will be more meaningful to you. For example, you could add a few pinecones to a winter wreath using branches from the tree you and your partner planted together.
Wire or Pin, Don’t Glue
Instead of using hot glue to secure leaves and branches to leaf forms, wire sprigs in place with floral wire or use straight floral pins to secure branches to straw forms. In addition to helping foliage stay in place securely, you won’t have to worry about burning yourself with the hot glue.
Have Fun With It
Remember, when it comes to floral arrangements for your own home, there are no rules. To give your wreath a little personality, consider adding foreign objects like gardening gloves, clothespins, or wooden letters. Little details can give your wreath a visual anchor and allow you to personalize the project.
