This year for the first time, the Christmas collection is released online. Made up of two styles of florals, the ones that will be discussed in this blog are the wreaths. The DIY wreaths are the perfect Christmas flower decorations.
Both the Winter Forest and White Wonderland wreath have the same DIY concept and, you will learn how to do the Winter Forest wreath in this blog. You can also watch the head florist Maria on YouTube doing a Masterclass on doing your wreath.
Once you receive your package of festive goodness, inside it will contain a golden hoop, the long stems required for your wreath – depending on which one you purchased – a gold wire and a ribbon to hold up your wreath.
Your first course of action is to take the Amaranté London ribbon provided to you and tie it to your hoop. You were creating a natural loop for your wreath. That will also give you an idea of where to start building your wreath as you made a midpoint with the ribbon. It should look something like this.
Gather your provided floral stems, the golden wire, and your scissors. Now you will prepare to make your little bunches. That will help you build your wreath. First, take your stems and cut them short. That makes it the ideal size to bunch them together.
Pick one piece out of each floral and bunch them together. That will create a mini bouquet if you will. Using the wire, cut the wire into short pieces enough to cover your stems.
Please take a short piece of the wire and wrap it around the bottom of your little bunch, making sure you tightly wrap it together. Keep doing this until you have put all your florals into small bouquets.
You can start building your wreath with your little bouquets of florals. You then wrap the little bunch from the bottom to the golden hoop using more gold wire. Please make sure you tightly wrap it over so your bunches don’t fall later.
Keep doing this with your little bunches. Trick point: ensure that you cover the gold cable with the next group you are layering on as you go. By the end of it, you shouldn’t be able to see any of the golden wire from the front. So instead, go all the way around in the same direction you started with, creating a visually appealing festive wreath.
You can choose only to do half of your wreath, giving it an elegant look accompanied by the bare gold hoop. As seen in the image below
Or you could choose to carry all the way around and go for the festive look like this one. That would be an ideal arrangement to put on your front door. At the same time, the half wreath would make an excellent addition to your festive decoration indoors.
Behind your wreath should look something a little like this. The gold-coloured wire is hidden behind the florals and can’t be seen from the front.
