Protea Wreath: Crafting & Care


Christmas trees aren’t the only game in town when it comes to adding natural botanical decor to a home. As holiday wreaths go up, we love the idea of replacing the faux with fresh protea and greens. A bountiful protea wreath enhances festive décor and adds a sense of luxury and organic authenticity to a home. Our wreaths are carefully created using daily harvested, fresh-cut flowers and foliage to ensure longevity. But what can you do to help ensure the longevity of your wreath once you’ve placed it in that special place? Follow these simple steps:


Water your Wreath...

Whether a wreath is hung in the heat of your house or the cold air outside, these winter environments are dry, and the flowers have no source of moisture. You will need to adjust the amount of water your wreath requires based on where you put it. A wreath displayed outside in a cool climate will require misting once a day. A wreath kept outside in a warm climate, or displayed indoors will need frequent watering or misting. You can also lay it in a couple inches of water to allow it to 'drink' from the back where the stems are.

Spritz your Wreath...

Another beauty tool also can be a secret weapon here. Grab a can of Aqua-Net, that beloved American hair spray brand, and give your wreath a spritz. If it could turn crazy-big '80s hair into a helmet, keeping protea and foliage in place should be no problem.

Avoid Direct Sunlight...

Your wreath should be kept out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources.

Enjoy – Happy Holidays...

After the flowers begin to fade, cease spraying and let the wreath dry naturally. Protea don’t die, they dry ‘Beautifully’.
