Our Creative Stylist Shares How To Design Your Own Wreath with Our Fillable Form
While spring may be abundant with blooms and summer is full of lush, leafy foliage, there’s something about the spareness of a fresh winter arrangement we find so appealing. This year, we brought in a new fillable metal wreath base that’s easy to fill with fresh stems, foraged botanicals, and evergreen branches for the holidays. We caught up with our creative photo stylist to hear how she put together this design and for simple ways to update it through the seasons.
terrain: So happy to chat with you about another one of your gorgeous designs, Beth! To start, could you just tell us what you used here?
Beth: Happy to! For this one, I used floral wire, asparagus fern, blue thistle, and, of course, our new fillable wreath form.
terrain: Love how simple this is for such a striking finished product. Can you tell us a bit about your inspiration for this design?
Beth: I was looking for a warm winter palette to create a seasonless look. Both the thistle and asparagus fern are fresh, and I know they’ll preserve and dry nicely in the form, transitioning seamlessly from the holidays into the new year.
terrain: Can you briefly walk us through the steps you took to create this look?
Beth: This wreath form makes it so easy to create any look. I literally just placed the stems into the form. I may have wired one or two of them in place, but not many. The cool part is that I love how the form looks on its own, so I went with an asymmetrical design to show off the metal base.
terrain: Where do you see it living in the home?
Beth: In a living room, above the mantel, or on a front door that is protected by an awning.
terrain: We love the way this one looks, but if someone is looking to forage elements from their own backyard, do you have any tips for substituting botanicals?
Beth: In this wreath, I have used two elements, a “special” and a “filler.” With that formula in mind, you could really use anything! Foraged branches, berry stems, evergreen boughs—I would recommend to try and choose elements that dry well, although it’d be so easy to refresh weekly, treating it like you would a fresh bouquet in a vase.
