Make it Monday: Pantone Wreath

Hi there, and happy Monday! This week on the blog, I’ll be celebrating all things ultra violet! I love taking inspiration from the Pantone Color of the Year and doing some crafting, recipes, and home decor using that color. Last year, the Pantone Color of the Year was Greenery, and I did some fun posts inspired by that bright, yellowy green. You can read those here.

This year’s Color of the Year is ultra violet and I just love this blueish purple hue!

I decided to gather some flowers in varying shades of violet and create a fun wreath to celebrate. My first step was the gathering and shopping for my supplies – I visited Michaels and my own garage stash to pick out a wreath, flowers, and ribbon.

When creating a wreath with one tone, I like to use a variety of flowers. I went with anemones, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and peonies. Then, I decided on a navy striped ribbon to accent.

Once everything was gathered, I started with my largest purple flowers and tucked those into the wreath first. I like to use the rule of thirds when building the wreath, and I employed that here. From there, I tucked in the next largest flowers around the largest flower.

Next, I tucked in the green hydrangea, and finally, I tucked in the smallest ranunculus.

Finally, it was time to add the ribbon. I tied a basic bow, then tucked it into the flowers, and wove the tails in between the flowers to add some depth.

Once it was done, I took a step back to fluff out the flowers, and highlight more the ultra violet anemone flower by adding just a few more of those.

I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I think it’ll be the perfect wreath to hang on our door until it’s time to switch it up for Valentine’s Day!

Check back tomorrow for a delicious ultra violet recipe!

Party on!
