12 DIYs of Christmas #2: Heart Wreath

12 DIYs of Christmas #2: Heart Wreaths | Dossier Blog

Welcome back to the 12 DIYs of Christmas! Today’s DIY is a simple take on a wreath by using a heart frame and some Eucalyptus. It smells delicious and fresh and happens to dry out gracefully as it hangs. So you can get the most out of your fresh heart wreath for the Christmas season!

#2: Heart Wreath

You will need:
-Heart-shaped craft ring
-Eucalyptus or other foliage
-Floristry wire or other thin wire
-Cutters

To begin, cut a piece of eucalyptus big enough to cover half of the heart ring. Starting at the bottom of the heart, loosely tie the Eucalyptus on, leaving a small end to stick out past the bottom of the heart.

Work your way up the side of the heart, tying on the foliage round the bends until it has covered one side. Cut any pieces that stick out too far or leave them loose and free – the style is up to you.

Do the same to the other side of the heart, using as much or as little foliage as you like. I went with a more minimalist approach. If you do the same, you really don’t need much more than a few fronds of Eucalyptus!
