I’ve been noticing delicate Scandinavian holiday wreaths floating around lately; last week I said to myself, “Enough is enough, I’m making one.”

All you need for this wreath are a few materials from the hardware store (see our sources below) and a few sprigs of greenery. You might even consider adding a clip-on taper candle holder in the center, and if you do, I suggest these traditional Silver Candle Holders (10 for $12.99 from Bestemors).

Want to give it a try? See my DIY video below for step-by-step instructions (you’ll need to source the materials outlined below).
