Chinese New Year is on February 5, 2019. If you celebrate this holiday, here is a modern twist showing how you can use a Christmas wreath and transform it into a Chinese New Year wreath. It is great to display over the fireplace or anywhere inside your home. You can display it outside too if you laminate the red lucky envelopes.
I made this wreath using just two stems of forsythia, ribbon, bread twist ties, tape, and lucky red envelopes.
Total Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 1 wreath
- 1 wreath
- 2 forsythia stems
- bread twist ties
- lucky red envelopes
- Figure out how you want your forsythia flowers (or your flower of choice - usually yellow and red for Chinese New Year) to be on your wreath. A piece of red fabric can be tied at the center top to use as a hanger.
- Now use the bread twist tie and attach the forsythia to the wreath. Try to secure the bread twist tie near the flowers so it could be easily hidden.
- Repeat and add forsythia to the other side of the wreath.
- Now to hide the stems of the forsythia I wrapped some ribbon around the wreath and stems. (You can cut the forsythia stems if you want, but I want to use these for year-round decorations afterwards so I tucked them into the wreath and secured with bread twist ties.)
- For the finishing touches and to further hide the stems, attach lucky red envelopes.
- You can add more or less, its up to you. Now it is ready to hang!
