"H" is for Heather Wreath

Craft: diy purple heather wreath

A little Spring clean up of overgrown heather yields a new wreath:

A low cost, natural wreath using heather cuttings right from the yard.
Simply wire together bundles of heather into a circular wreath shape and hang with burlap strips

No wreath form necessary, the green floral wire is barely visible but it's all you need to connect the branches together:

Here's how to make a heather wreath from branch clippings:

1. Collect a big pile of heather branches:

2. Start with a small grouping of branches wrapping wire around the stems:

3.  Continue to add small groupings, placing them on top and slightly in front of the previous grouping and wrap wire around as you go:

4.  At the end tuck last stems under branches of starting point to make circle.
Add burlap strips for a hanger:
