With more and more style-conscious homeowners adorning their front doors with spring wreaths, Anglian Home Improvements provides homeowners with expert tips on creating their own seasonal masterpiece to spruce up the exterior of their property.
A spokesperson from Anglian Home Improvements commented:
“Although a traditional Christmas decoration, wreaths are becoming increasingly popular throughout the year. They can be used to great effect to make a statement on front doors, while also introducing sophisticated spring style to the home and brightening the entrance to the property with added greenery and seasonal appeal. The beauty of a wreath is the opportunity for personalisation – it can be created to suit yourproperty and to reflect your individual taste. Taking the time to make your very own wreath can be a really enjoyable activity and is something all the family can get involved in. A wreath can be as simple or as intricate as you want it to be. Think about what fresh buds and blooms and seasonal decorations you personally like to see at this time of year, then simply follow the steps below and have fun creating something that is completely original and bespoke. You really can’t go wrong!”
1. It’s All About The Base
It’s best to work on the table whilst you’re preparing your wreath form, and hang it up later when you add the decorations and final touches. For fresh greenery wreaths, make a base using wire coat hangers, wire the hangers together in a circle and secure using floral tape, which can all be purchased from homeware stores like The Range.
2. Branching Out
Once your base is complete, cut several long pieces of greenery (for example, Moss or Ivy), and using a lightweight floral wire, secure the branches to the wreath base. Ensure the stems are overlapped and keep adding the stems until the wreath base is fully covered.
3. Add A Seasonal Flourish
There are so many seasonal decoration ideas that are perfect for spring. Flowers such as Freesias, Magnolia, Camellias, Daffodils and Tulips are perfect for adding to your wreath.
Ribbon woven through the wire and wreath greenery can add spring touch and soft colour, especially pastels such a pink, yellow, green or purple.
Seasonally themed decorations add the final flourish to your wreath. Ribbons, bows, personalised letters, wooden symbols and decorations, will add the finishing touches that make your wreath stand out on your street. A glue gun is essential when adding decorations to the wreath, especially with heavier items.
