I originally saw this idea on Twitter. I wish I could remember what website had actually published it but unfortunately all I captured was a copy of the picture from their site. I just fell in love with this idea. I needed something for the front door for Easter and the moment I saw the picture I just knew this was it.
So as my husband headed out to the farm this morning I asked him gather me a lot of twigs so I could try to recreate the wreath. Here is what I did to recreate the wreath.
1. Gather twigs from your backyard or a park. You want them to be about the thickness of a pencil and about 24″ long. You are going to need about 30 twigs.
2. Starting with the longest part of the cross, pile up your branches until you get to the desired thickness you want. Using neutral colored twine, tightly tie the branches together into a bundle.
3. Repeat the same process for the shorter section of the cross.
4. Bundle the two sections together by crossing the twine into an X pattern (see below).
5. Add artificial lilies and a few sprigs of small white flowers for decoration.
6. Add small loop on back, hang and enjoy!
