Your holiday decor isn’t complete without a wreath! Create a simple evergreen Scandinavian wreath in minutes for instant global style!
When it comes to creating a wreath, I typically lean more towards the simple side. I created a bohemian macrame hoop wreath this past season and it was pretty simple to create. Today, I’ll be sharing a simple evergreen Scandinavian wreath for day 10 of A Very Global Christmas! If you’re just joining in the Christmas fun, I’ve partnered with Kathy of Up To Date Interiors to share 12 days of globally inspired Christmas ideas. We have shared room tours, Christmas decor DIYs, Christmas trees, and more! You can catch up on the previous days by heading to my Very Global Christmas page. There are even more globally inspired Christmas ideas on Kathy’s Very Global Christmas page. Be sure to check out Kathy’s wreath after my Scandinavian wreath tutorial.
DIY Scandinavian Wreath
Although my Christmas decor so far has been centered on blue, pink, and teal; I wanted to incorporate some sort of green element. Evergreen has always made me think of Christmas and the winter season. The smell of the fresh cut evergreen always makes me giddy as I get a rush of childhood memories flooding my mind. Though we do not use real Christmas trees in our home, we do have a rather large evergreen tree just beside our garage. I love to snip a few sprigs and bring them indoors each winter. Since I didn’t emphasize the greens this Christmas, a DIY Scandinavian wreath with evergreen was my best bet.
This DIY wreath idea is simple and quick to make. I used some of the Hearth and Hand ribbon I used for the DIY simple Scandinavian centerpieces I made yesterday, some evergreen clippings from my yard, and some pheasant feathers.
Start by using a few sprigs of the evergreen and insert a few pheasant feathers. I used 5 feathers total to add a change of texture to the wreath. Use the ribbon to secure the bunch evergreen and feather. Be sure to wrap tightly so that you have a nice and secure bundle.
Tie a knot at the end of the wrap so that the ribbon doesn’t shift when hanging. Now you need to tie the other end of the ribbon to the top of the wreath. You’ll need to tie a knot around a few sprigs and feathers to make the wreath hanging loop. This knot will also help distribute the weight of your wreath so it doesn’t go teetering over to one side when you hang it.
