Add some festive DIY touches to your home with a classic Christmas wreath your neighbours will be envious of! Here, Temple & Webster stylist, Adam Powell, explains the easy steps to make your own traditional wreath with classic conifer foliage and a dash of festive red.
Essentials: A wreath frame (ours is from Spotlight) and florist wires or zip ties.
Heroes: 6 sprigs of conifer (evergreen or other shrubs work equally well), and a dark red flower (ours is a beautiful peony).
Fillers: Thick red ribbon, small coordinating baubles, butchers twine.
With the traditionalist in mind, this chic wreath is designed for those who dig red and green.
Keep all of the branches going the same way and trim anything not fitting the shape. Spray with water to keep things perky, and replace the flowers weekly. Alternatively, you can use fake flowers. The greenery will last 2-3 weeks.
Adam’s tip: Opt for either clustering your decorative elements together, or spreading them around.
Swap out the red for white and gold. Dahlias look great at this time of year and come in plenty of colours.
