How to DIY a Twig wreath?

Making this DIY twig wreath is a breeze and requires no special skills. However, I have included a few helpful tips and pictures to guide you through the process.

To begin, gather around 80 thin twigs and break them into small pieces measuring between 4 and 7cm.

Next, create a base ring out of cardboard by marking and cutting circles. Our ring measures approximately 20cm.

Using a hot glue gun, attach the twigs to the cardboard ring one by one, ensuring that the distance between them is uniform. This step should take no longer than 10 minutes.

Interestingly, my 3-year-old daughter also helped with the project. Although we typically don’t allow her to use the hot glue gun, I carefully taught her to add twigs to the base.
