Baby’s breath and berries

Keyanna from East + Lane created this simple and long-lasting natural wreath using fresh Baby’s breath, berries and a hessian ribbon. She says it takes under 10 minutes to make and the Baby’s breath dries beautifully or can be kept fresh by spraying occasionally with water.

Succulent wreath

One of our absolute favourite non-traditional DIY wreath ideas is this living succulent wreath that Mikahl of Maddison Bloom created. This affordable DIY is loads of fun to make and the best part is, it will continue to live well past the festive season!

For a more minimalist succulent wreath idea, we also love this Kmart hack Christmas wreath that Amanda Massey shared in the Kmart home decor & hacks Australia Facebook group. She says, she simply attached sphagnum moss with a fishing line to the Kmart wicker wreath and used a hot glue gun to secure the succulents in place. Once Christmas is over, you can remove the succulents from the wreath and re-plant them 😉

Wreath with faux flowers and fairy lights

Using a similar method to the ‘Traditional wreath with modern twist’ above, Antoinette Favory created this stunning Kmart hack Christmas wreath switching out ornaments for faux flowers and tree picks, and finishing the look with a string of LED fairy lights. The red berries and pine cones are so festive while the gum nuts and other artificial stems give it a contemporary feel. Best of all, you can find all these items at Kmart!

Coastal chic wreath

Caitlin from Beach Road Interiors takes thrifty to the next level with this incredibly clever wreath. She shows us there’s no need to spend up big, or spend anything at all!

She just added dried foliage from her garden to a piece of coastal art already displayed on her wall. It gives her home that festive feel while still staying true to her coastal interior.

To ditch the tradition and tackle this DIY, simply tie dried foliage with zip ties to a piece of art in your home. And the best bit? No need for the dreaded post-Christmas decoration pack up! This piece can stay up long after the holiday season is over.
