DIY Minimal Wreath

DIY Minimal Half Wreath @themerrythoughtI have been cleaning out my apartment for the past few weeks and this week I got rid of tons of old Christmas decorations that I never use and I’m left with just two small boxes of vintage ornaments and a handful of handmade ornaments. I’m excited to start making some fresh decorations for this year – and this simple wreath is perfect! Anything with some fresh greenery is always a win in my book and I like this more modern feel to a traditional wreath.

    Hi! Long time reader and newer blogger here! This wreath may be perfect for my tiny apartment door! There are about 10 apts in my little section, and they start to look a little too similar around Christmas time. Also, no criticism here, but I think your “older” and “newer” buttons at the bottom may be switched around. (oops!) The “newer” button takes you to older posts and vice versa. Just wanted to let you know 🙂ReplyCancel

      So glad to have you reading along! And we totally appreciate the heads up – we are working on a bunch of changes around the site and have a few adjustments to make still and we totally hadn’t noticed that. Thanks!! xoReplyCancel

    Oooh, so simple and gorgeous! I think I will have to look around the neighborhood during the dog walks for a few branches and berries to use. Thanks!ReplyCancel

      Thank you so much! This bunch was in an unmarked “bouquet filler” package at the store. I would guess that it is silver dollar eucalyptus though.ReplyCancel

      Ours stayed pretty green for at least a week and they dried nicely and I kept it up as a dried wreath and love it!ReplyCancel
