Create your own Pussy Willow Wreath!
Pussy Willow (you can get this from your back yard, or maybe even a nearby river area... being legal of course)
A thick wire (an old wire hanger will work)
Hot Glue gun
Thin Floral Wire
Step 1. Form a circle with your wire. I used a thick gauge wire, but an old hanger would work great too!
Step 2. Wrap the stems around the wire, secure with wire. (you only need to use wire for the first layer)
Step 3. Repeat the process. You will want to weave the branches in and out of each other to hold
Your wreath will start to look like this. Just keep weaving in and out and making sure all sides are evenly full.
As you get closer, use your glue gun and smaller pieces of the pussy willow to fill in gaps and hide any unwanted wire. When you're finished you'll end up with this! I hung mine up inside so that I could bring the spring in! I love it.
I made two. One for me: below and one for my mother-in-law: above.
Do you like the bow? Check back later this week... I'm going to have a tutorial on bow making!
