Kitten Grayson Flowers everlasting spring wreath - How To in 5 Steps

Kitten Grayson creates theatrical floral installations for great and the good; all the best fashion, beauty and interior brands and in 2018 designed the London gate entrance to the RHS Chelsea Flower show.  She and her team have kindly agreed be part of the #ExcitedforEaster campaign and below you’ll find a ‘how to’ so that you can create your own everlasting wreath.

What you need:

Reel Wire

Wire cutters

Scissors

Birch Twigs or any think and bendy twigs

Dried Flowers, Silk flowers, flowers from an old arrangement or Foliage

Ingredients:

Birch Twigs

Catkins

Statice

Lagurus Ovatus (Hare’s Tail Grass)

Pink Rhodanthus

Sanfordii

White Larkspur

Moss

Step 1

Start by forming your wreath base with the birch branches. Bend them into a circle and wrap the reel wire around as you go. Once you have done this all the way around you can cut the wire and secure it in place.

Step 2

Add bunches of twigs to your base, let them roam free and stick out on the sides to create movement and texture. Use the reel wire to secure them

Step 3

Now that you have a base of intertwined twigs insert your flowers and foliage into these. You can focus your flowers on one area or all around your wreath — it is completely up to you.

Step 4

Add some moss in places for extra texture. Secure with the reel wire.

Step 5

Hang it on your wall and enjoy your everlasting wreath over Easter and for years to come.
