Eucalyptus and Feather Winter Wreath

Greetings Over the Big Moon friends (can I call us friends yet?).  I hopy your holiday preparations are going smoothly and your enjoying this Christmas season.  I have a fun winter DIY for you today!  The perfect wreath for those in between months of Christmas and Spring, an Eucalyptus and Feather Winter Wreath.

I chose Eucalyptus because it’s such a pretty evergreen with green and silver tones.  Feathers, pinecones, and spotted gold picks add more winter whimsy. supplies-winter-wreath

Here’s what you need: 

(apart from the feathers, you should be able to find these items at your local dollar store or yard!)

grapevine wreath form

florist wire

5 eucalyptus stems

gold ball picks (and a black sharpie/pen)

pinecones

Step one:  

To make the gold ball picks less Christmassy, draw black dots with a sharpie all over the top halves.  They will add a fun punch of color to the wreath!

Step two:

Clip off the stems about one inch below the eucalyptus leaves.  Place and arrange on wreath by placing all of the bunches in the same direction evenly spaced out. wire-stem-winter-wreath

Step three: 

Tuck the stem into the grapvine wreath.  Secure long branches of leaves with florist wire.  Leave some out for an organic shape. pine-cone-winter-wreath

Step four: 

This is probably the first time I haven’t used hot glue on a wreath y’all!  Wrap a piece of wire around the bottom of a pinecone and attach to the top of the wreath.  Create a cluster of 3-5 (depending on the size).

Step 5:

Space out your feathers and stick them into the wreath form and eucalyptus.  Secure with wire where needed.  Place and secure a few spotted gold picks.  Add a bow at the top near the pinecones and you’re finished!

I’m so pleased with the way she turned out.  It might be my favorite wreath yet!   I love the pinwheel shape of the leaves and feathers.

The gold picks with black spots are fun!
