You can duplicate this wreath in just a few easy steps. There really is no mystery to wreath making, and this one is no exception! With the steps below, you’ll be hanging your own spring wreath in no time flat. I’m so excited to show you how!
What you need to make an easy spring wreath of your own!
- A grape vine wreath form. I got mine at Michael’s.
- Greenery. I chose ferns, but any greenery at the craft store will work.
- Flowers. This is where I had the most fun! choose a couple of spikes that are on the larger side, and a couple that are smaller for accents.
- Fabric. The aqua plaid really caught my eye for this spring wreath.
- A glue gun. The one I linked would be perfect. Mine is a mini gun and I really don’t enjoy using it. It falls over and goes through glue sticks like there’s no tomorrow. Ugh.
- Wire cutters are necessary. If you try to cut through the flower stems with scissors, you’ll ruin your scissors.
- Sharp fabric scissors. These are great for the price.
How to put your wreath together.
- Start with cutting and ripping your fabric. Choose a fabric that looks good on both sides, like a linen or plaid that is a lighter colour.
- Lay the fabric out on the table, an make a 1 inch snip about one to two inches wide. See the photo below.
- After snipping the one inch, tear the rest of line you’ve already started to snip. Like the photo below.
- Do this a few times, so you have a little pile of fabric strips. Set them aside.
- Next, using the wire cutters, snip an odd number of fern stems for each side of the wreath. Glue on with the glue gun, pressing with your fingers to get it to stay stuck on to the wreath. Careful though, it will be hot!
Have fun while being creative!
- After adding an odd number of fern stems on one side, add an odd number to the opposite side, facing the opposite way. Leave a three inch space between the fern stem bottoms. We’ll be putting a ribbon in between them.
- Add larger flowers, laying them the same way the fern stems are going. Some facing one way, and some facing the opposite way. Just like the photo below.
- After you’ve glued the larger flowers on, you can glue the smaller stems of accent flowers in place.
- Now for the ribbon. This is where your fabric strips come into play. I took three fabric strips and lay them on top of each other. Wrapping it around the wreath form at the spot that you left between the flowers, tie a simple bow.
- Make sure to spread the fabric strips out a bit on the bow, so it looks full. See the photo below.
All you need to do now, is hang your wreath up! It would look lovely on a door, or in a special spot in your living or dining room, wouldn’t it?
Pin it for later!
