Here is a simple, smart looking wreath design, that makes a great starter project and is sure to be a success.
(1) Salal (Lemon Leaf) Wreath 18"
(1) Lavender-dried bundle 3oz
(1) Cockscomb-Pink field bunch
(1) Tallow berries-Faux bunch
Scissors, Glue Gun or Glue Skillet.Step 1)
Starting with our Salal Leaf Wreath makes this project really quick. Shake out any loose leaves and set them aside (DO NOT DISCARD THE FALLEN LEAVES, WE WILL USE THEM LATER).
Open your Lavender bundle and carefully separate about 10-20 stems. Cut the bottom of the stems off, so that the overall length is about 8".
Now tuck in your smaller Lavender bunches around the wreath. You can always come back later and add more bunches.Tip: I like to tie my smaller bundles together with fine wire, or dip the bottoms into my Glue Skillet. This way you can make up the bundles in advance and they are much easier to handle and work with.
Break off pieces of your Cockscomb and place them around your wreath, until you achieve the desired look. As you can see at this point, you could be working with almost any type of flower, in any color. The reason we chose Cockscomb, is not only because the Pink goes so well with the other colors, but the Cockscomb pieces do not have a stem for attaching. You can hot glue the pieces directly to the Salal leaves, or you can hot glue them to a wire or other discarded flower stem. Tip: We glued pieces to the Tallow Berry stems and that seemed to work great.
By now you can see how this wreath is really coming together. You may want use some of your extra Salal leaves to fill in here and there.
It's time to place the Tallow Berries into your wreath. Remember, you can add, or subtract as much as you want until you like what you see.
Congratulations! And Enjoy.
