DIY Tutorial: Eucalyptus Antler Wreath

 
Oh, what a delight it is to celebrate the winter season and holidays in style! Found in the pages of our Woodland Lodge Idea Book, this accent was designed by our stylist Charra; in a perfect combination of cabin chic style and natural decor. With only five ingredients to this festive wreath, easily create a statement piece in your home or for your event that will impress friends, family and guests!

1. What You'll Need

 

  • 1. Grapevine wreath
  • 2. Antler floral pick (you can also use <antler ornaments with wire or fishing line)
  • 3. Mercury glass LED pine cone string lights
  • 4. Three decorative eucalyptus sprigs
  • 5. Two AA batteries for string lights

2. Insert Sprig Into Vine

Tuck each eucalyptus sprig in this wreath, spaced far enough apart to cover about a third of the wreath. The stems will easily blend in with the vines.

3. Tuck Tendrils to Secure

Wrap the eucalyptus branches and tendrils into the vines to secure the sprigs in the wreath.

4. Insert Antler Pick

Bend the wire of the pick to mimic the wreath's curvature. Slip the antler floral pick stem at the bottom of the eucalyptus set so that the top antler overlaps the sprigs.

Tip: You may replace the antler floral pick with antler ornaments instead. This allows you to choose where the antlers go and you can add more or less depending on your preference. Secure the antlers with metal wire or fishing line and tuck the twine rope into the wreath.

5. Wrap and Weave the Lights

Arrange the pine cone string lights in your wreath so that they are woven into the sprig set. Secure them by weaving them between the wreath and sprig branches.

6. Hide Battery Pack

Tuck the battery pack in the vine on the back of the wreath. Make sure to conceal the wire as well.

7. Show Off Your Wreath!

Spruce up the sprigs, illuminate the pine cone string lights and find the perfect spot in your home for this uniquely woodsy wreath! Find more decorating and DIY ideas in our Woodland Lodge Lookbook (pdf)!
