New to our home decor collection this season is our Modern Eucalyptus Wreath DIY Kit.
Made with your choice of brass or copper base and paired with preserved eucalyptus branches. Branches can be place only on the bottom with top metal exposed or set skewed to one side for an asymmetric look as shown here. We love this effortless minimalist modern metal wreath. It’s the perfect stylish seasonal decor for your home and neutral enough to be displayed year round.
DIY kit instructions are as follows:
- tutorial instructions
- eucalyptus branches
- thick brass or copper wire (brass orders place after Aug '18 will come with a 12" metal hoop)
- thin wire
- copper foil tape
- natural cotton rope
Form thick brass or copper wire into a circle. The wire is malleable and will take some bending and shaping till you get the shape just right. (Brass orders placed after Aug '18 will come with a 12" metal hoop and will skip this step.)
Overlap ends about half an inch and wrap washi tape or copper foil tape around the that section to hold wire together. Tape will ultimately be covered with branches.
Set hoop on table and layout your branches on top of the hoop where you plan to arrange them on the hoop. When you are happy with the placement, use the thin metal wire pieces to wrap around branches and metal hoop to keep them in place.
Place any extra brances in areas that need more fullness and wrap in place with thin wire pieces. Repeat until you have your desired look.
Loop cotton rope around top of wire hoop and tie in a knot to hang.
There you have your finished wreath, ready to display. This is an example of an asymmetrical side wreath, but you could also only have the branches at the bottom with top metal exposed or wrap the branches all the way around for complete coverage. It’s your preference!
