To say that I’m obsessed with miniatures is an understatement. I always have been. I think it might be a psychological thing—when I was a kid, my dad bought me a dollhouse kit for Christmas and never finished it. Let’s face it: I’m scarred for life, people!

That’s why I have my own dollhouse even though I am a grown woman—but in fairness I let my daughter play with it whenever she wants. (She did put stickers all over the inside wallpaper when she was a toddler. That’s not cool, but I let it slide.)

Anyway, when my sister and I did this wreath tutorial, I was so excited, and yet I still felt like something was missing. Sure, I had an incredible wreath on my front door, but my dollhouse door? It was so sad, so empty. I realized the situation had to be rectified immediately and created this miniature wreath DIY.

But what if you don’t have a dollhouse? Well, so what if you don’t have a dollhouse?! This little wreath would be festive when tied to a little houseplant pot that needs some home decor love. It would look oh-so-holiday when tied with a ribbon around the neck of a gift bottle of wine (or, really, any gift). You could make a Christmas village out of birdhouses from Michael’s and slap this little baby on there to be delightfully extra. And that cute, new gingerbread house “barn” kit you just bought? I feel a miniature botanical wreath moment coming on!

Of course, the real point of a miniature wreath is the sheer pleasure of making it. There’s just something about teeny tiny things that makes one shiver with delight. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get this little show on the road!
