A Simple Modern Wreath DIY
A simple yet modern take on a wreath using a brass ring, some eucaplytus, succulents, airplants and more! Flowers from The Flower Factory.

Loving the simple, neutral coloured wrap ideas. From kraft paper, white string, manilla tags and washi tapes to wrapping in duck cloth (and sewn together with red thread) —love that!
