Handmade Money Plant Wreath

Simple wreath of seed pods from money plants

The book Fairie-ality Style: A Sourcebook of Inspirations from Nature by David Ellwand is one of the most gorgeous over-sized books that passed through my hands recently.  I loved the colorful photography and whimsical creations made of found materials in nature.  And I was inspired to make my own simple wreath of money plant seed pods after seeing one in the book.

I love the translucent pearly pods.

    I love the translucence of the wreath. The pods remind me of jingle shells.

    If I may ask, what are these attached to and how did you attach them? It’s really pretty. I want to make one too!

      I went out to the wild stuff taking over my yard and cut a long pliable slender branch from a bush. I shaped this into a circle and fastened it with floral wire. I used a hot-glue gun to glue the money seed pods to the round form, overlapping as I went. It was super simple. Have fun!
