DIY FLORAL WREATH WITH LUCA LUNA

 

With Christmas just around the corner, it's time to dust off the decorations and add a bit of festive spirit to your home. We thought we’d enlist the help of our good friends and stockist at Luca Luna, to kindly pass on some tips on how to make your own dried floral wreath from scratch that looks festive, natural and uniquely amazing.

1. Source a wreath base

You can either purchase one from your local florist or get creative and make your own.
Think outside of the box, anything round and pliable material will do.

 

 

2. Forage your floral ingredients

It’s best to use preserved or dry flowers, so your wreath will look just as good for next Christmas. Start hunting around your backyard & neighbourhood. Palm fronds, seed pods, dried foliage & leaves are perfect. 

Remember the more variety of shape and texture the better. 

Add a pop of colour, by visiting your local florist for some preserved flowers.

 

 

3. Start assembling

Once you have collected your elements, all you need is twine, a hot glue gun, and a glass of wine!

First, decide whether you would like a full wreath, or simply a feature at the bottom, an inspiration pic can be a big help.

Start with a dry run, roughly laying out your flowers on the base until you are happy. Use larger pieces first to give structure, then add finer pieces for softness.  Simply use the twine to bind each piece firmly to the base, working from left to right. Layering & overlapping each element, covering the twine as you go.

 

 

 

4. It’s hot glue gun time!

 If you see any empty spots or gaps in your wreath, weave the stems of finer elements into the base & hot glue gun generously in place. 

 It’s a good idea to glue any preserved flowers last, as they are fragile.

 

 

5. Hang or place

Now it’s time to attach some ribbon, hang and enjoy.
