Is it unofficial wreath week here on the blog or what?! Haha! Welp I hope you’re all here for it because next up are these DIY star anise wreaths! So simple and natural – they’re the perfect addition to my Christmas decor. My decor is mostly fresh pine scattered all over and a bunch of mini Christmas trees and vintage candlestick holders. So these wreaths fit in perfectly!
I went to a local spice shop and grabbed a few bags of star anise and everything else I already had on hand! So it was a cheap and easy project – which is always a win for crafts.
Materials needed for DIY Star Anise Wreaths:
- star anise
- macrame hoop (or you can make a hoop with wire)
- hot glue gun
- velvet ribbon or muslin fabric
Watch the video below for how I put it together and a few tips too!
A few tips:
- If your star anise comes broken you can break a couple apart and glue the pieces back into a mostly whole piece to create some whole looking star anise. (A lot of them will from what I’ve read in reviews and what I’ve seen from the bags I’ve bought)
- If you want it to be a bit more secure, you can use felt or fabric. Cut thin strips of felt or fabric, then glue it on the back so that it is wrapped around the hoop and glued to a bit of the back of the star anise as well.
