Designer Maya Smirnova shared with usAn interesting master class for making a festive Christmas wreath. The whole process takes no more than half an hour. The crazy rhythm of city life does not always allow us to find time to properly prepare for the holidays. Therefore, often New Year's decoration of the interior is limited to the decoration of the tree. The most busy of our readers who dream of an original festive decoration, but do not have enough time to create it, we offer a special express master class for making a Christmas wreath from coniferous branches. Today's talented designer from Khabarovsk Maya Smirnova shared with us the master class. Maya Smirnova, designer Head and designer of Studio of Interior Design Studio May in Khabarovsk. She graduated from the Elite School of Design in courses "Interior Design" and "Landscape Design", British Higher School of Design and the International School of Design Rhodec in the UK (with honors). He prefers interiors in loft style and restrained, elegant classics. So, to make a festive New Year's wreath we will need:

  • Artificial twigs spruce on a wire frame;
  • Thick wire with a diameter of 2-3 mm for the base of the wreath;
  • Thin green garden wire or sewing thread for fasteners;
  • Cones;
  • Brushes of berries;
  • Braid for hanging a wreath at the door;
  • Carnations and a hammer.

We twist into a ring with a diameter of 20 cm thickWire (in this case, such a wire was found on the site, which makes the designer, but in principle it can be bought in the construction market). We disassemble the artificial spruce branch into small segments (paws). We begin to weave them into the ring, further strengthening its design. Twig behind the twig we weave Christmas trees inwreath. Segments are located in one direction, beautifully straighten them in the process of work. For reliability, we connect the twigs to the ring with a camouflage shade or a thin wire. We adorn a wreath with cones. We fix them with a pistol with hot glue or wire. Articles on the topic We supplement the wreath with tassels of berries. The most effective will look berries of a bright red shade. They can be powdered with artificial snow. For fastening to the wreath, we just sew the bunches of berries with a needle and a green thread. We tie a wreath of a matching tape andWe hang it on the door. Advice from the designer Maya Smirnova: - In order not to spoil the door leaf, carefully nail the carnation for the braid in the upper end of the wooden door. We choose a thin tape so that the door can be closed freely. Happy New Year, friends! Photos are provided by the designer
