DIY Easter Wreaths

DIY Easter Wreaths

I first started making these wreaths while taking Riley on a walk. There were several vines and twigs that easily bent and twisted without breaking and all of a sudden- inspiration struck! These DIY wreaths are so easy to make you will just love how they turn out!

Start with malleable vine and twigs such as the one pictured below.

Gather twigs, vine, etc. If it bends without breaking, it’s perfect!

Malleable Vine For Wreaths

Now, Let’s begin …

1. First, gather a bundle of the vine that you’ve collected. The thicker the bundle, the better.

2. Carefully bend the bundle into a circle.

Some pieces will poke out or fall apart, and that’s okay! Once you weave around the circle it will all hold together.

3. At the base of the circle where the vines come together, be sure to leave extra space. You will use the extra strands to weave around the circle so everything holds together.

4. Begin weaving!

Take the extra strands of vine and use them to weave around the circle by going under and over.

5. Continue to weave around the wreath multiple times. Once the strands run out, use more vine. Continue until you are satisfied with the width of the wreath and once everything is held together in place.

 

6. After you’ve weaved all around and everything is in place, it’s time to decorate!

7. The best part is decorating. I bought colored styrofoam eggs, ribbons, and bows from the dollar store. The dollar store is a crafters haven because everything is so cheap, and crafting inspiration is endless! For $1 they sell a bag of 6 small colored styrofoam easter eggs that are perfect for wreaths. A.C. Moore and Michaels are also an obvious go-to and finding coupons is so easy now.
