Hey everyone! Keyanna here from East & Lane, I’m a fellow blogger from Taylor’s hometown, Ocean City, MD. I’m super excited to share a DIY with you guys today. The holidays are right around the corner…not sure whether to scream with excitement, or panic! There’s nothing I love more than a reason to redecorate my house with seasonally appropriate trends and festive decor, but with the busyness of life, coupled with how hectic the holiday season can be, I tend to be a last minute decorator. So when it comes to decorating my home for the holidays, the projects need to be quick, easy, and fun. Cue this DIY holiday wreath—it’s the sum of all three.

Baby’s breath (I used 1 bunch)

Burlap ribbon

Instructions

1. Gather a few stems of the Baby’s Breath, form them around the wreath, and secure with floral wire. Continue adding Baby’s Breath, overlapping each bunch on top of the previous bunch until 1/2 on the wreath is covered.

2. Add wild berries

3. Finish it off with a pretty bow

*Maintenance: Baby’s Breath is long lasting and will dry out, nicely. To help preserve the Baby’s Breath, you can periodically spray with water to hydrate.

This was my first time making a wreath and it literally only took me about 10 minutes to make, and I absolutely love how it turned out! A great thing about this wreath is that it’s very transitional. I love how rustic it looks with just the Baby’s Breath, great for Fall (or Spring for that matter), but by adding a few festive touches like berries and ribbon makes it perfect for the holidays!
