How to Create a Next-Level Holiday Wreath
Designer Suphoj Chancheaw has a modern, structural take on holiday decor this season. As an interior designer who recently translated his skills to Bloom Couture Floral Studio, a new shop in the South End with offerings from fresh cut bouquets to elaborate event installments, Suphoj works to create statement pieces that deserve a second look.
“This wreath is composed of mini, live poinsettias and Kokedama (Japanese moss ball plantings) that are individually hung to form a circle,” says Suphoj. Each moss ball is approximately seven inches wide and is suspended from a piece of wood on the ceiling. The look runs $250-$400 depending on the size and type of plants used.
Poinsettias are festive this time of year, but Suphoj says that any house plants will work for this piece, such as ferns, succulents and orchids. With the right supplies, creating the look at home is easy.
Get the look at home:
1. Gather plants, fishing wire, hooks, and a wooden slat or dowel.
2. Attach hooks and fishing wire to plants.
3. Suspend plants and attach the fishing wire to the dowel at the desired height.
4. Secure the dowel to the ceiling.
5. Keep fresh by misting with a water daily.
