Twiggy Wreath

UndertheTableandDreaming
{This wreath was featured here}

How to make a {simple} Twiggy Wreath. I first got the idea of making a twiggy wreath while visiting family. I researched a bit and discovered these wreaths can cost anywhere from $25 and above. Since I wasn't about to pay that much I decided to make my own.

First I purchased an ordinary wreath for about $3.00.


I then began to add small twigs, which I happened to find in our yard. {Yes, that would be my thrifty find.}


All I did was fit small twigs within the purchased wreath. {I wasn't joking when I said this project was simple.} This picture was taken halfway through the project.


Voila, a Twiggy Wreath and although mine doesn't look exactly like the wreath I first saw, its close enough. I might add more twigs and see if it improves the fullness of the wreath in the days to come. I didn't intend to add anything else to the wreath as I liked the earthy-ness of it, but thought about adding a sign to it that says something for each season or holiday.

So, finally, I am catching up on my projects. Hooray!

Oh my gosh! I never thought of that! That is great! I was looking at them this weekend and they are ridiculously expensive! I have thousands of free twigs! Thank you so much!!

Love it Belle!!! I always wanted one and didn't want the price either, so now I can do what you showed me how to do. Thanks lady!

Absolutely fabulous! Sometimes simple ideas are often the very best. I love it:) ~ Tina x

I have one of these but it is fully decorated and I think I paid $49.95 for it. You could easily decorate yours any way you want for less than that!

Oh how I wish I had been born with the crafty gene... This is such a cute idea. I have some berries on a vine out back that would work too. Love this!

One Belle to another (my blog tagline reads "this northern belle budgeting beauty into life) that wreath is simply BEAUTIFUL. Thanks for sharing.

Funky Junk Interiors said...

Fabulous move! The twiggy wreaths are terribly expensive. And I like your variation even more. I'm totally going to beef mine up after seeing this. :)

What a great solution to building your own wreath. I've got twigs all over my yard that I've been dreading picking up. I think I'll make me a wreath or two.

Found you thru Funky Junk's Facebook link. I'm now a follower. Fun blog.
