Your Holiday wreath can be embellished with living plants. This easy DIY shows you how to create a wreath and place air plants in them for a unique look.
– Command™ Oil Rubbed Bronze Metal Hooks
– Small wood rectangles
– Spray paint
– Glue gun
– Cardboard or scratch paper
– Air plants
NOTE: Follow all Command™ Brand package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesive strip placement and recommended weight claims.
1. Lay out your wood rectangles on a piece of cardboard and spray paint in your favorite holiday colors. Leave some unpainted as well. Allow them to dry thoroughly.
2. On your cardboard or scratch paper, draw the outline of the shape you'd like your wreath. We sketched out an equilateral triangle, with each side 12" long.
3. Start gluing pieces together, using the shape you've drawn as a template. Use the glue gun to glue pieces together one by one. I recommend mixing unpainted pieces with painted pieces for a random look. Place some pieces over and some pieces under their neighbors so that the wreath doesn't warp.
4. Continue tracing the outline you drew until your pieces form an entire wreath.
5. Remove the red side from your Command™ adhesive strip and press it onto the back of the hook. Clean the wall area where you'll be mounting your hook.
Remove the black liner from the adhesive strip and press the hook firmly onto the wall, holding for 10 seconds. Make sure to clean your wall surface before sticking the hook on the wall.
6. Slide the hook up and off, and press the base for 30 seconds. Slide the hook back on and wait for about an hour for the adhesive to full stick before hanging any heavy items on your hook.
7. Grab some air plants and nestle them in among the geometric tiles on your wreaths. You shouldn't need to glue or affix them in any way -- just let the tendrils of the air plants curl around the tiles and they should hold well.
