3 Ways to Reuse Your Blooming Branches
As blooming season comes to a close for our flowering branches, we're finding creative ways to reuse the sculptural twigs that remain. Recently, our stylists created three looks using tulip magnolia branches that had finished blooming, beginning with a wild wreath that's perfect for sunny windows. Starting with our Citrus Garden Wreath, we tucked in spent magnolia branches. To keep the branches in place, you can use floral wire to attach each stem to the wreath, if needed. A loop of ribbon for hanging finishes the look.
Next up, our branches are illuminated by a strand of glowing Stargazer Cascade Falls. We tucked a pair of tall branches into a colorful, recycled glass vase, then wrapped the individual twigs in Stargazer strands. Beautiful when illuminating the spring mantel or doorstep, this look also makes a dramatic centerpiece for garden party tables.
In our final look, a bundle of branches becomes the base for a swag of fresh foliage on the doorstep. The branches lend structure to soft asparagus fern fronds, plus a mix of fresh cuts and faux ranunculus blooms. A colorful garland of pressed metal flowers finishes the swag.
