Recently, I came across a beautiful crescent moon wreath design and thought this would be a great addition to my home. I had a great time putting together this elegant and beautiful wreath. It’s feathery, floral and illuminated! It was an easy wreath to make!
Here are the materials that you will need (please note, some items were not included in the final design):
List of Supplies Needed for crescent moon Wreath
Grapevine Wreath – 18″
- Assorted feathers: I chose some sturdy bright turquoise and fuchsia feathers similar to these (Turquoise Pheasant Almond Feathers, Turquoise & Purple Mix Packaged Feathers, Peacock Natural Feather Picks With Loop – 5″)
- Assorted flowers: I chose two bright white peonies along with some blue, gray and purple flowers for a more mystical look.
- Clear Tiny Lites with Green Cord
- Pair of heavy duty pliers or cutting tool to trim wreath
- Glue gun
STEP 1: Trim Wreath into a crescent shape
Using your pliers or cutting tool, cut a large section of the wreath on both ends. Trim the ends on an angle so it looks similar to this:
- If you have a small electric saw, this can be done much quicker. If not, just take your time while clipping off your branches.
STEP 2: attach your lights
- Before you get started, insert batteries into the battery pack before you secure it to the wreath.
- Place the battery pack on the middle of the wreath and while holding it, secure it with wire. Wrap wire several times around the battery pack and wreath until it’s securely held in place. I do not recommend using hot glue in this area since the battery pack is pretty thin plastic and you don’t want to burn a hole into it.
STEP 2: add your feathers and flowers
- I started by adding some feathers first, then attaching some flowers, more feathers and so on. I really wanted the feathers to stand out but not cover the flowers.
Here is the completed look!
I really like how this wreath came out 🙂 You can make this wreath with so many different floral and feather combinations as well as crystals or netting for a really cool look.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Have you made a crescent wreath? If you have, share your photos! Would love to see your creations!
