Christmas curly willow wreaths

The garden began to overgrow. Instead of waiting until easter (I normally put the branches into a vase with some fake eggs) I decided to make willow wreaths with these bendy branches. This is the result! Crafting is way cheaper and more fun, don’t you think?!

Me, knotting the willow tree.

Items that you need:

For the willow wreaths itself you need a whole bunch (about two arms full) of the branches. Use longer branches and tie them to make a circle. This will be the size.

 Then you start attaching some branches with wire. The ends you’ll have to wind around the initial circle and attach with wire again. Later on you won’t need to use wire but you can use the many holes in the willow wreaths and braid the branch into. Always wind in the same direction, this will make your work much easier.When you start out it’ll look uneven and you won’t have much…but as you keep on adding more branches it’ll start to look great and eventually, with a little patience, you’ll get it to look evenly round at all sides!

Since it was Christmas time, I decided to put some lights and decorations into the willow wreaths.

  2. Thank you for your comments! The great thing about the wreath is that it can be re-decorated. So now I’m thinking about doing the Easter decoration wreath too, good idea Annefleur!
