Fall Swag Wreath
I love the simplicity of the gold round mirror above my mantle, and wanted to keep the fall decorating on my mantle pretty simple so that the mirror didn’t get lost! I thought about creating a fall swag to put on my mantle, but that’s when I thought about making one to highlight the round mirror! Don’t get me wrong, the swag on the mantle sounds great, but this time around, I made it for my mirror!
I collected some faux materials from Hobby Lobby, but any craft store should have them. They are usually on sale. You can also use anything you want to make your fall wreath swag! I picked out faux eucalyptus, faux seeded eucalyptus, and a fall feathers bunch! As I was picking up the feathers, I was like, “Who am I? Am I really going to put feathers in my fall swag wreath!?” I’m so glad that I did! When I usually think of feathers, I think of a very ornate and decorated style. Since I was going for something pretty simple, I wasn’t sure if it would work, but I think it does! It looks somewhat boho, which isn’t my exact style, but then again, I don’t really know what my style is! Ha!
I used some floral wire and floral tape to hold it together. I was able to attach it to the wall with some command hooks. Read on to find out how to make it!
Details to DIY the Fall Swag Wreath:
- Faux eucalyptus
- Faux seeded eucalyptus
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Command hooks
Cut apart the stems if they are attached together. Once the stems are separated, they are easier to maneuver.
Start placing different stems together creating a longer line of stems. For example, place a eucalyptus stem on your flat surface. Then put another one a few inches below. Next, get a seeded eucalyptus stem and place it a few inches below the previous one. I suggest attaching these stems together using floral wire at this point. Now you can add your feathers or any other material that you will be using sparsely. Attach them using the floral wire as well. Since the stems are made from wire, try to start bending your fall wreath swag into the shape of the letter “c.”
Repeat this process for the opposite side. You will making a mirror image of the swag you just created, because they will get attached in the middle (at the bottom of the stems).
After you are happy with the way that your two swags look, overlap the stems several inches creating a curved “c” shape. It’s more of a soft letter “c.” Start wrapping the stems with floral wire. Then repeat the process with the floral tape to try to cover the wire.
At this point, you will be able to see the floral tape, so you are going to cover it using more of the eucalyptus stems. I added them going up the stems and going down the stems. These were attached with floral wire, but I was able to wind the wire underneath the leaves, so you can’t see it.
Keep forcing your fall swag wreath into a “c” shape to go around your mirror.
I suggest doing a test run to see where you would like to place your swag. After figuring that out, you will be able to attach your command hooks to the wall. I used three hooks. I placed one hook a the top, one in the middle, and one at the bottom. Next, slide your swag into the hooks to hang it!
