Originally, I thought the article associated with this image was a DIY project explaining how to make those amazing 3D snowflakes. But, alas, it was not actually a DIY. Even so, the snowflakes are available for purchase via Luna Bazaar.
To achieve a similar effect without dropping cash on these exact snowflakes, you could always create a grouping of your very own handmade snowflakes — they don't even have to be 3D. It's the grouping of the snowflakes that really makes this idea special anyway. I love how grouping a collection of similar pieces can instantly turn them into an art installation.
If you're in the mood to make some snowflakes of your own, a quick Pinterest search for paper snowflakes yields a wealth of inspiration. There are even templates and tutorials available if you're in need of a little more direction.
This tinsel garland wreath is a super simple DIY from Creature Comforts. I love how the silver tinsel used to create the wreath in the photo has an antique look to it. It reminds me of the amazing vintage, silver Christmas tree my mom and I found at a garage sale one year. The tree — and this wreath — are stunning!
I am fascinated by all things geometric. Geometric pieces just seem to exude modern appeal and instant edge. While this wreath DIY by Vintage Revivals looks incredibly sophisticated, it can be created with very inexpensive items — cocktail straws and floral wire! The wreath seems like it could be a bit time-consuming to make, but Vintage Revivals provides an excellent written tutorial and a video tutorial as well!
And, sorry to go all Culture Crush on you in a post that's otherwise simply related to holiday decorations, but this wreath brings up the perfect opportunity. Here goes:
The geometric design of this wreath is inspired by Himmeli. According to “Christmas in Finland,” Himmeli are traditional Finnish Christmas decorations originally made of straw. To make the Himmeli, straw was carefully selected, softened, cut, and strung together to make intricate, geometric mobiles. Traditionally, Himmeli were made at Christmas and left on display throughout the next year to ensure a good harvest. (“Christmas in Finland.” World Book. Vol. 9. p. 16-17).
...Historical, culture-infused and on-trend!? This is one cool wreath!
