A super easy Mimosa Wreath

Nothing says ‘SPRING’ more than fresh, bright flowers!
This is also the reason why I had to make a mimosa wreath, just like the one I saw in Holly’s new magazine Living at Home X Holly!
The styling is by my super talented friend Cornelia, and I simply had to have a wreath like that at home!

For this mimosa wreath I used:

-6 bouquets of mimosa

-scissors

-a wooden wreath with gaps (the best part of it, you can use it again and again and again…)

If you are just as inspired as I am and wish to create a little sunshine for your home, these are the simple steps to follow:

 

  • use the already dried blossoms as a base (the name says it all! mimosa is a very delicate flower and some of my branches were already dried a day after I bought them home. Still, don’t throw them away, use them as a base for your wreath, they will still give the arrangement a solid yellow background)
  • put the mimosa in the gaps of the wooden wreath (the wooden wreath I used as a foundation, already has gaps to use, if you use another wreath as a foundation, make sure you fix those mimosa with a thin wire)
  • slowly add more and more mimosa to the wreath (make sure the blossoms all show in the same direction, this way the wreath will turn out very evenly)

  • slowly the wreath will add up in volume (make sure to use the prettiest blooming mimosa on top of the wreath as this is your focal point)
  • I decided I was finished when I had used all of my mimosa 😉 
  • also, make sure to make a very fluffy and ‘stuffed’ wreath (this way it will dry beautifully and you won’t be able to see any gaps once its dried)
