How to make asymmetrical modern Christmas wreaths

Asymmetric modern floral wreaths DIY holiday Christmas party

Looking for a simple, yet elegant backdrop for a holiday party? We’re hosting a dinner tomorrow night and I was looking for something easy and natural-feeling, yet festive. Every time I pull up Pinterest, my feed is filled with these asymmetric modern wreaths. I scrolled through some tutorials and they all seemed pretty straightforward, but they involved ordering hoops, and finding fresh or beautiful faux flowers. Ain’t nobody got time for that! The dinner is tomorrow! Even if I order a hoop on Amazon Prime, it won’t be here until the day after tomorrow, and Hobby Lobby isn’t open on Sundays. Trying to find a way to make something with what I have on hand, I then thought about the beautiful bushes in our back yard. They have beautiful red and dark purple berries right now, so I decided to see what I could come up with.

This project turned out to be super easy and I’m really happy with the results. I picked out few of the longer branches and cut them as far back as I could, about 3 feet. I brought them into the house and looped the branches around to make a circle. The ends are overlapped by a few inches, as the end furthest from the bush was a little wobbly and the one closest to the bush was a little stiff. I tied them together with gold string I dug out of one of my craft drawers, and voila!

A beautiful modern wreath. The whole project took probably 20 minutes. They are a perfect addition to our holiday decor. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results!
