Starburst Twig Wreath

If you’ve read this blog more than just once you probably know I have a bit of a thing for using natural elements to decorate my home, and for a budget-savvy gal like me, there’s no better way of introducing this textural earthiness to a space than via a great-outdoors scavenger hunt. So, until money grows on trees, I’m taking my free share of what already does…twigs that is.

This starburst inspired wreath was basically free and super-duper fast and easy to make.

Fortunately for me, where I live there’s no shortage of sticks just lying around…

…and after collecting my pile – with a bit of help (or hindrance, more like)…

…I broke them down into similar sized lengths.

I then cut a disk from an old cereal box to create my base. I figured the twigs wouldn’t completely cover and hide it so I wrapped it in twine which gives it extra rigidity as well as a nice, rustic look.

Using a hot glue gun, I worked in sections to attach my sticks to the twine covered disk, building them up where necessary to create a pleasing wreath shape.

To finish, I simply tied a length of twine around the central disk to create a hanging loop.

I like to use decorative upholstery tacks to hang stuff like this.

My little wreath is a bit random and unstructured, and whilst not for everyone, I like the rustic appeal of it. The great thing about a project like this is you can make it as neat or as messy, big or small, bulky or sparse as you like!
