California Radish Wreath

California Radish Wreath

DSC_0213

In case you hadn’t noticed, radishes are dirt cheap right now, pun intended.  I got mine at the local grocery store for 44 cents per bunch!    I love the crunch and the bite of radishes, but did you know you can make  a quick and inexpensive show-stopping wreath for your next outdoor get-together?

The mounted radishes can stay fresh for several days with a light spritzing of water every now and again.

I think my favorite feature of this vibrant wreath are the long, spindly root sprouts that seem to have a mind of their own and create their own untamed design.

MATERIALS & INSTRUCTIONS

DSC_0193

  • 10 bunches of radishes
  • Wire wreath frame (I used a 16″)
  • Floral wire
  • Needle nose pliers

DSC_0197

Cut an 18-24″ piece of floral wire

DSC_0198

Wrap the wire around the base of the radish bunch

DSC_0201

Twist the wire to secure.  Use the needle nose pliers to tighten if needed.

DSC_0203

Mount the radish bunch to the wire wreath frame, keeping the green tops towards the outer and the radishes towards the center of the wreath.  Use the needle nose pliers to tighten if needed.

DSC_0204

Keep the position of the wreath in mind when wiring.  The bunches at the top of the wreath should be wired near the greens.  The bunches at the bottom of the wreath should be wired near the radishes, so they don’t flop down when hung on a wall or front door.

Hang and enjoy!
