So now that the New Year is here and we are still in the winter season what kind of decor do you use? Do you leave up your holiday lights until spring? Do you go back to just the same old everyday look? I still like to have a nice seasonal wreath for the decor on my front door! That’s where I got the idea for this beautiful transitional winter wreath!
Transitional Winter Wreath
Separate pieces of the silk flowers into individual stalks (? not sure what these thingies are called, but you definitely need this type of long grassy flowers with the tiny white flowers at the ends)
This is the trickiest part. Weave the grass like ends of the flowers allll through the branches of the wreath. I tried to have them kind of facing like they were moving up toward the direction of the top of the wreath. I didn’t want them looking just random but if you like that look do what you want!
Now is a good time to attach and small loop of twine to the back of the wreath where you want it to hang. Just loop it around a few branches and tie it off, place it on your wreath hanger and adjust it as needed.
Now, place the birds as you’d like around the wreath. They have a long wire in the back so it’s very easy to place and adjust to your liking. Hang your new wreath and enjoy!
I think this wreath is transitional because cardinals are a big symbol in winter decor and the small white flowers bring just a little hope of the spring to come!
I hope you liked this tutorial, it’s really not very hard now was it?!
