We hit the high 70’s here in the PNW today and oh my goodness, it was so incredible! I was helping at my kiddo’s class and as I walked out, I overheard the kids saying how hot it was… That is was just like Hawaii! LOL… I got a fun laugh at how much we love the sun here and it does feel just like Hawaii ;). Anyhow, with all the warm weather, I am beginning to prepare things outdoors too. Which is why I made this DIY Spring fern and eucalyptus wreath to share with you! I joined my friend Krista at The Happy Housie for The Seasonal Simplicity Tours with wreaths being the star of the show.
Here is what I used for this wreath and how easily I put it tougher!
I like to use these fanned out grapevine wreaths as it is easier to glue greenery atop. I also had some faux ferns/eucalyptus stems at home. I did pick up some extra pieces at the craft store as well. You will need cutters/scissors to shorten stems and a glue gun with gluesticks to adhere all the pieces.
For starters, I put everything on for placement and got a good idea of how I wanted the wreath to look. I placed the ferns underneath and the eucalyptus leaves spread on top.
Then I began very carefully gluing the stems in layers. Please note, you must be so careful with the glue gun and hot glue here. You want to glue far away from your fingers as you place the pieces in. I like to put glue at the bottom part of the stems and insert them into the wreath branches so that they stick.
In the end, I placed some more details with the seeded parts of the eucalyptus and finished the wreath.
I love how simple this is. I know, I know… You are so surprised that I did something simple again aren’t you? 😉 Simple seems to be my theme lately…
My local grocery store had these ferns and I grabbed a couple as they were a great price. I love how just having a couple plants out front really sets the stage for the season.
This wreath mixes nicely with assortments of greens, which makes it versatile and great for any style!
Now I just have loads and loads of gardening to do out here and in the back, haha!
