DIY Twig Wreath

76K Views
With all of the storms we have had in Florida, my yard has been littered with twigs. This seemed like the perfect time for a DIY wreath. Instead of purchasing a wreath form, I simply gathered twigs from the yard and brought them in to begin making my wreath.
Time: 2 Hours Cost: $9 Difficulty: Easy

I began with this pile of twigs and started sorting out the straightest ones for my wreath.  I knew ahead of time I was going to make this a square wreath.

This was as simple as just laying out my twigs in the shape and size that I wanted.  This is such an easy DIY wreath.

I continued to lay out the twigs in my square pattern using multiple twigs on each side.  I just kept building it up until I was happy with how the wreath was beginning to look.

I decided the best choice to put this together with was Gorilla Wood Glue.  I started by adding glue to any spot wherever my twigs touched each other.

In spots like this where the twigs crossed,  I added a generous amount of the Gorilla Glue.   Gorilla wood glue dries a natural color so it won’t show up at all on your finished wreath.  Make sure that your wreath is firm to the touch and none of the twigs wiggle or you will need to add additional glue.  If your wreath is not firm, add additional twigs for stability.

I was pleased, when I hung up my wreath that it was strong enough to hang from a Command hook and it was completely secure, ready to be adorned.

The natural look of the twigs is what I want to see when I look at this wreath, so  I needed to add very little embellishment.  I simply added two artificial burlap and fabric hydrangea blossoms.  I glued them securely with Gorilla glue.  I added three of the leaves from the hydrangeas and a simple burlap ribbon.

I first hung this on on my door on an angle.  This is not how I planned on displaying it, but it certainly could be hung this way.

What do you think?  Should I display it square or at the angle?  I had the Gorilla Glue on hand, so all I needed to make this wreath was two faux hydrangea blossoms and a $1 roll of burlap ribbon!

    Glueing makes for a more random design. I made a spring one using Hydrangeas and greenery. Hot glue is so handy and I made the mistake of using it on my wreath. If it were to have been hung inside it would have been fine. It was hung on a door facing west....afternoon temps. up in the high 90's made the glue true to it's name, HOT, it melted and flowers slowly fell to floor. I used a different glue and lesson learned. Hot glue melts, even in the sunshine.
