Easy DIY Summer Wreath

Happy Wednesday! Today, I made this super easy summer wreath with live clippings! I think this wreath is so great for summer and a great way to add greenery into your decor! It took me all of five minutes to make this little wreath, here’s how:

What you’ll need:

  • Embroidery hoop
  • scissors
  • tape or wire
  • leaves and flowers!
  • yarn (optional)

So first, get some clippings from wherever you want. Mine are all from my backyard but bigger flowers are never a bad idea if you want to buy some!

Just make sure you have some kind of background plant, as I like to call it.Β Just something simple that won’t distract from the main plant! Then tape or wire your background plant to the hoop.

The objective is to have the least amount of tape or wire showing. Even though it’s probably not very conventional – sorry, florists! – I used tape because I felt like it held the plants exactly where I wanted them.

Then, add your main plants! I used these little pink clippings from some kind of Myrtle tree in my yard, score!

Of course I had to add more flowers!

I kind of weaved the flower stems around each other and the background plants to minimize tape use. I did not use yarn in this because I thought it looked complete, but I was planning on using yarn to hang the hoop!

And that’s it! This super easy to make summer wreath is finished! I definitely plan on making more of these and experimenting with different plants and techniques. Let me know if you try this out!

XOXO, Val
