Seasonal Garden Twig Wreath
I love wreaths and who says they should just be for Christmas? This tutorial will show you how to make an easy wreath that can be displayed all year round.
What I love about this piece, and hopefully you will too, is how few supplies you will need and how easy it is to make.
What you will need to make your wreath is:
- Faux flowers
- A glue gun
- A wall hook
Firstly, chop your twigs to roughly 4 inches in length, however, having slightly different lengths isn’t a problem at all.
What I did then was drew a circle on some paper as a guide for where my twigs were going to go. I made a rough sun style shape along the circle with my twigs before adding another layer of twigs in a criss-cross fashion. This is when I started hot-gluing the twigs together at the points in which they touched. I then carried on adding layers of twigs and gluing.
When I was happy with the amount of twigs I had in my wreath, I laid out some flowers and leaves at one end of the wreath before gluing them in place.
If your wreath feels a little rickety then turn it over and add some extra hot glue in places that will help add stability. Allow to dry fully!
Lastly, add a hook to the wall and hang proudly!
It’s a easy as that

I’m going to give this a try! And I think I may spray paint the twigs black. I’ll see how it looks natural first! Thanks for the awesome idea!

I still have twigs in bags in various places in my art space! I think I overestimated how many I'd need 😅 but they're great for so many other crafts too!
I like it.
Could you start with a wire rim or would that ruin the look?
Did you spray paint the twigs black?
