Easter decorations are very much the order of the day this year
Subsequently, if you're after ways to boost the appearance your front door – and add some seasonal style in the process - a wreath could be the addition you need.
If you're wondering how you can create your own stunner, Anglian Home Improvements is on hand with the tips required to create a lovely sight.
A spokesperson from Anglian Home Improvements commented: "Although a traditional Christmas decoration, wreaths are becoming increasingly popular throughout the year. They can be used to great effect to make a statement on front doors, while also introducing sophisticated spring style to the home and brightening the entrance to the property with added greenery and seasonal appeal."
"The beauty of a wreath is the opportunity for personalisation – it can be created to suit your property and to reflect your individual taste. Taking the time to make your very own wreath can be a really enjoyable Easter activity and is something all the family can get involved in."
"An Easter wreath can be as simple or as intricate as you want it to be. Think about what fresh buds and blooms and seasonal decorations you personally like to see at this time of year, then simply follow the steps below and have fun creating something that is completely original and bespoke. You really can’t go wrong!"
1. Base show
When preparing your wreath, you're best off starting work on the table. It can then be hung up as you add the decorations and final touches. For any fresh greenery wreaths, you're better off making a base from wire coat hangers. These can then be wired together in a circle and secured with floral tape.
2. Branching out
After completing the base, the next step is to cut several long pieces of greenery (this includes moss and Ivy). Then, ensure you've secured the branches to a wreath base. Have each stem overlap and then continue to add them until the entire base is covered.
3. Finish with a flourish
There's a lot of seasonal decoration ideas that work brilliantly this time of year. Having spring flowers like Freesias, Magnolia, Camellias, Daffodils and Tulips all contribute lovely style to your wreath.
You can then weave ribbon through the wire and use wreath greenery to add a spring touch and some soft colour – pastel tones work particularly well.
For the final flourish, use Easter themed decorations. Miniature eggs, spring animal decorations and religious symbols all give you the perfect final touch and ensure your wreath will stand out. Just remember to use a glue gun - this will be crucial when you're adding decorations, especially the heavier items.
