Handmade Winter Twig Wreath

I love to get all cosy in winter and just sit on my sofa with a hot chocolate under a blanket and having pretty things around my house to looks at. I like to bring nature inside the house so I decided to make a lovely wreath from things that I had found in my garden. Here’s a lovely mini twig wreath I recently made. I was hoping to make a bigger one, but couldn’t find any really long twigs.

To make this you need:
  • Bendy twigs
  • a pine cone
  • an acorn
  • hot glue
  • ribbon
First get a few of your twigs and bend them to make sort of a half circle. Then get one twig at a time and entwine then and wrap them around the half circle, keep placing each twig further along until you have made a full circle.
Hot glue a pinecone and acorn on and fasten a bit of ribbon to the top for hanging.
And there you go. Your very own winter twig wreath!
Top Tip: Start with the thicker twigs and wrap the smaller ones in last
Have you ever made a twig wreath before? I’d love to see them, leave a link in the comments

  1. Every year I say to myself that I will attempt making a Christmas Wreath. Your description of how to do it is perfect so I shall print it out and have a go at making one. 🙂
