Make A Willow Heart

How to Make a Willow Heart

Create a really simple but beautiful heart wreath out of willow twigs by following these simple instructions.

You will need:

  1. Wire coat hanger
  2. Thin wire
  3. Willow twigs (you can buy them here: willow twigs) or any bendy twigs
  4. String or raffia
  • Start with an old wire coat hanger (charity shops are a good source if they have been banned from your house!) and twist into a heart shape. You might need some pliers to twist the ends together.
  • Now take some willow twigs, secure at one end with the thin wire and wrap around the hanger until it is covered, use more thin wire to secure ends.
  • Make a hanger out of the string or raffia and attach to centre top of ┬áheart.
  • You can decorate with smaller hearts (as I have done above) or ribbon.

Of course you could just buy one!

    • Willow heart

Please post your own ideas for simple wreaths, I’m a sucker for anything heart shaped!
