Here’s a fun craft project using twigs from our backyard. This natural twig wreath is made using fallen sticks, wire, and leather and can easily be added to for different seasons or holidays.
- wire ring (I think the ring I used came from a hub-cap)
- twigs in assorted sizes
- copper floral wire
- gold beading wire
- leather cord
- hot glue
How I made it
I tried planning and my initial plan didn’t work at all. To accomplish this wreath I genuinely had to let the sticks fall where they may. It kind of just all came together by laying out the bigger sticks and gluing them together where they touched. I then added smaller sticks and weaved them together where they naturally fit. Next I wrapped the leather cord around in several places and then added more sticks to fill in the blank spots. The copper wire added more strength where the leather didn’t. For an extra decorative element I added the gold wire to contrast the leather and copper. Leather cord is used to hang the wreath.
