The boho trend is hot and it’s here to stay. And for good reason. It’s organic, romantic and simple. It means using nature to create beautiful scenes and decor. It’s currently being used in everything from home musings, nurseries, weddings and even clothing and accessories.
During our May workshops, we offered this beautiful boho wreath as a workshop. It was also used by Kristin at a fabulous wedding shower she threw in March. Without further ado, we wanted to share the tutorial so you too can make one of these before Spring’s end. Every blank wall in your home will want a little boho now.
What you will need:
- Brass macrame ring. 12″ in diameter.
- Greenery and blooms. We used a combination of succulents, ferns, white roses, ranunculus, frosted leaves and eucalyptus.
- Hot glue gun and glue
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
How to get started:
With your brass ring on a large surface, begin to lay out all of the greenery you would like to use. Although it may look like you are using a lot of greenery in the finished product, it’s really only a few springs of each layered on top of one another to make it look full and vibrant.
We purchased a long fern-type of greenery and cut about two 12″ sprigs from the top.
Place the sprig on the ring and glue down as evenly as possible. Due to the thin nature of the greenery, it can be tough to make all adhere. If this is the case, reinforce with a small amount of floral wire where needed.
At the bottom of the first spring, place the other sprig going the opposite direction. This will now become the base of your arrangement.
On top of the fern sprigs, now clip and glue two to three eucalyptus leaves or smaller greenery of your choosing, using the same method. One clipping will go in one direction and the other clipping will be glued in the opposite direction.
Once greenery is glued and cooled, you can then begin to add the larger blooms and succulents. Start with the heaviest and largest flower first and then move on to the smaller. Tip: Use the smaller blooms only to accessorize and cover any imperfections. The boho look is meant to be simplistic, so overdoing it takes away from the aesthetic.
Due to the weight of some of the flowers, especially the succulents, the glue may not be enough to hold in place. Again, this is where you will reinforce with floral wire.
In any bare spots, or where floral wire needs to be concealed, simply glue in individual leaves and tiny blooms. Let the glue dry completely and you are ready to hang! These are lightweight and 3M hooks are the perfect way to easily display without hammering holes in the wall.
Just like the boho name suggests, this project is perfectly simple. We LOVE to use it in large groups of 5-7 for a beautiful statement.
After the shower, the bride to be used them within her reception space above the cupcake table. Wasn’t it just perfect?!?
Happy making and boho decorating!
