Find out how to make a Spring Floral Wreath! Trust me, if I can do it YOU can do it too!! As crafty as I may be, believe it or not I am AWFUL at making wreaths! I don’t know what it is, but it’s just something I’ve never mastered!
In fact, the closest I’ve ever come to loving anything that I’ve made even remotely resembling a wreath was my Floral Wreath Chandelier that I made for my daughter’s room. Now THAT turned out adorable! As for front door wreaths, I had pretty much given up… until I saw this gorgeous Romantic Spring Bloom Wreath Tutorial by ‘Oh Everything Homemade’! LOVED it! Her tutorial was pretty clear so I decided to give it a go myself! It may not be as pretty as hers, but by golly I actually LIKE it!! (Go me! Go me!)
Here are a few pics in process:
As for the tutorial, Just click the link above to visit her post! I pretty much followed it exactly, with a few exceptions.
Wreath sizes will vary (I couldn’t find a darn thin one like hers), ribbon color and flowers will vary. Just pick what fits your personality and color scheme. We have white and pink roses planted along our front, as well as lavender plants. I really wanted to keep to that soft, neutral color scheme, and I added a few blueish/purple flowers (I don’t even know what they are! ha!) to pick up the purple from our lavender.
In terms of hanging, I was unable to find coat wire as she did! SERIOUSLY?! Of all times this is the ONE that I regret switching over to all wood coat hangers! lol. However; (being the sewer that I am) I found a D-ring and used that in it’s place. I then attached it to a heavy duty Command hook that I adhered upside down. Works perfectly! Lastly, I applied Fray Check to the end of my cut ribbon pieces to prevent fraying.
The only other thing that I did differently was to add our initial in the center of the wreath. The H wasn’t large enough to hot glue in place, so to keep it suspended in the center I simply laced clear fishing wire through the wreath and around the ends of each corner of the initial, then tied and knotted. So far so good (and we’ve had LOTS of wind here!)
That’s it, friends! Isn’t she pretty?! Officially my first front door wreath that I’ve ever made – and liked! Cheers to SPRING! (Now bring on the warm weather!)
