How would you like to make one of these beautiful Spring wreaths to decorate your door?? Dana is here to tell us how to do it!
Now I will let Dana explain how YOU can make a wreath to add a nice touch of spring to your home.
First, you will want to go to your nearest craft store to pick up your supplies. You will need a wreath form, (You can chose and size and texture you like.) an assortment of silk flowers, (I used 3 different varieties.) one bunch of silk greens, (I usually use ivy) matching ribbon, wire cutters, a hot glue gun, and any little extras you’d like to use. (Like a fake bird or some moss.)
Next, you’ll want to green your wreath. Take your bunch of greens and your wire cutters and begin to cut all of the stems off the bunch. I usually cut the stems in half so they aren’t as big. Now take a stem and simply stick it into the wreath form. Now keep doing that until your wreath is greened to your liking. You can green the whole thing, or just parts of it. I chose to green 3/4 of my wreath.
After greening, you may begin decorating it with flowers. Take your wire cutters and begin to cut the blossoms of the flowers off the bunch. (You will want to keep these stems kind of long.) Just like you did with the green stems, stick the flower stems into the wreath form. Keep adding flowers until the wreath satisfies you. You can make it as full or as simple as you’d like, it’s your creation!
Now, carefully flip your wreath so the flowered side is face down. (Make sure none of your flowers or greens fall out.) Take the hot glue gun and glue all the stems that are visibly sticking out. After gluing the stems glue all around the whole wreath so nothing will fall off.
After the glue has dried flip the wreath back around and add your ribbon. You can make a pretty bow or just wrap the ribbon around the wreath through the flowers. That is the last step.
Now take a step back and take a good look at your hard work, if something looks out of place you can always bend it to where you want since the stems of the flowers are pretty flexible. And that is how you make a wreath.
You can make wreaths for any occasion. (I made this nice Christmas wreath. )
Dana is my wonderful sister-in-law! She is currently working in a floral shop loves to do crafts on the side. She has been into making wreaths lately and with spring soon approaching (hopefully) she decided to make a nice springy wreath and I asked her to share her talents with all of us. She is going to be going into floral design as a career and has quite a knack for it!
