Autumn is upon us! Your SF furnished apartment is a small space that demands to be cozied up! This DIY fall wreath is cheap and easy, and it adds a festive flare to any home, just in time for Thanksgiving.
Here’s what you need:
- Green floral wire ~$2
- A circular base (wreath wire is ideal, I used a “Surface Saver ring”) ~$3
- A whole bunch of greenery of your choosing! $7-15
- Ideas: eucalyptus, oak branches, dried wheat, baby’s breath, bouquet fillers, cinnamon sticks etc. anything that catches your eye
Start by gathering a small bunch of whatever you want as the the body of your wreath. I used orange-tinted greenery. Wrap wire around the bunch and wrap it around your circular base, attaching your first bit of greenery to the wreath.
Continue this in the same direction until your entire circle is covered.
Now for the fun part! Attach small bundles of flowers, berries, etc to give your wreath some pizazz. You can go for a manicured look or something a bit more wild – whatever your heart desires!
The final step is to hang it on your door!
The best part? You can use any excess greenery you have to make fun fall bouquets, to make your shared housing in San Franciscoo even more cozy.
Pro tip: get some friends to join you for a wreath making party. Spread all your supplies on the ground, light some autumnal candles, turn on your favorite playlist or current binge watch and get crafting!
