A Foraged Vine and Berry Wreath

What about foraged vines? Not quite valued, but not quite worthless. My rustic design is of wild fielding clippings. A nature walk masterpiece. I started with gathering natural vines and loosely coiled them freely around in a circle and only secured the ends back into the vine itself. I then collected some interesting – dried flowers and red berries to weave in the vine. Just using what nature has to offer.

Completely organic in design.

I love building and creating with the old then adding the softness of the pretty brown silk ribbon – where rustic meets the refined. It adds to the cozy feeling and sort of warms things up, while adding texture and character to the space.

Winter often spurs me towards creativity. I often create with an edge, using decayed salvage. I’m intrigued with the texture of raw materials. You shouldn’t expect much less from me when designing such pieces. I layer with textures. Maybe I’m a builder with the decay and I deem it as art.;)

I don’t know… maybe it’s me being a bit sassy about winter decor. I like using natural elements. I love the clippings to use in my winter decor.

Tip: Forage your garden and yard to find dried elements that inspire you to create a gathered wreath.

This is a simple project that works well with my winter color scheme. A bit muted, calm, warm and natural. A neutral space for sure. Perfect for winter.

I love to bring out all those candles and enjoy that lovely warmth and ambiance they bring to the room. They truly do make everything feel more magical and add to the inspiration.

I hope this gives you some ideas for bringing in some soft, neutral & subtle tones as well as adding texture for the winter season. Just add some rustic decor!

Always sharing ‘my wild west stylin’ for my wild west livin.’

Cheers to a Happy & Healthy 2021
