Classic and charming-
citrus and fresh greens is always a welcome look for the holidays.
And creating a wreath and adding that charm in 20 minutes or less? Well in the busy and bustle- this is one thing that is so easy to make in a snap.
Today it is all about 20 minute decorating- that kind of decorating where you can snap your fingers and get something done like.that. No hours spent running around, moving furniture or redecorating a whole space.
Today it is all about this simple, easy to create fresh greens and citrus wreath.
Which was inspired by a few things really-
it kind of started with my husband doing some trimming of a few trees outside
which led to a whole lot of fresh greens clippings.
Here is what I used:
Fresh pine greens
Orange slice potpourri
White tallow berries
You will need a glue gun to create this wreath- and if you would like- you can also use wire.
I saw those green clippings and decided to create a wreath with them. It is so easy to simply tuck branches of greens of any kind into a grapevine wreath- hot glue if you need to- but I find often just tucking in between 2 branches does the trick.
After you get your greens placed- start adding your orange slices. You can layer a couple together, keep them all separate, add them in just a few spots or all over- there is no wrong way to do it.
Hot glue them into place- but do be careful of overly hot hot glue- when I created this wreath I remembered why this was a hot glue gun that I don’t use often. I got a tiny bit on my finger and it peeled several layers of skin right off in a split second.
Up next- add your tallow berries. You can use fresh or faux- they both have a similar look. I just tucked a few small sprigs here and there.
Then it is time for anything else you may want to add- ligustrum berries, sprigs of other greens, cranberries- your imagination is the only limit.
Once you are happy with how it looks- add your velvet bow or simply tie your ribbon for a more modern look- and enjoy.
Such a simple easy wreath that adds a ton of charm wherever you place it.
What do you think of how this wreath turned out?
