DIY Twig Sun Wreath Craft

Today's tutorial is for fans of unusual interior decoration. You'll learn how to quickly and easily make a sun shape wreath using catalpa bean pod. This natural handmade twig wreath may also serve as a photo or mirror frame.

Check out the video above to learn how to make your own!

Randomly attach some strips of tape all over the base surface. Remove the liner.

Take a strip of paper. Crumple it thoroughly and start wrapping the twig wreath base. Go round keeping the rows close to each other.

Press the paper with your fingers as you go over the double sided tape.

Do the same with the rest of the paper strips.

Fix the excess end of the strip.

The Base of the wreath looks neat and nice.

Before you proceed to twigs arrangement, tie a wreath loop. You’ll need around 1,5 meters of decorative ribbon.

Fold it around the top of the wreath and fix with a piece of craft wire. Trim the ends.

Now let’s decorate the wreath base. Start with the longer twigs. Here we have Catalpa bean pods that’ll give the wreath a chic and exotic finishing.

We’re going to arrange them in a radial shape.

Cut each bean pod in two.

Once done, hot glue them to the base, alternating gold, brown and white ones. Go all way round, fixing the sticks in quite a tight row.

Dab some hot glue and fix the pod.

Once you’ve finished the outer circle, arrange the short twigs round the inner one. Make sure the ends don’t go over the edge.

Then fix the arrangement to the base. Hot glue gun works best for this craft.

The natural sun shape twig wreath is ready to embellish your home for winter holidays! It’ll also make a chick all season home décor as a photo frame, or you might want to style up the mirror by just hanging a wreath like this over it.
