Happy Tuesday lovelies! I hope everyone had a wonderful start to their week after a great weekend.
I woke up Sunday, March 1st, and immediately felt the urge to do all things SPRING. I wanted plants, flowers, spring decor, you name it. So Jordan and I went out and spent the day getting all sorts of spring decor and flowers to make the apartment into a springtime paradise!
One thing we didn’t get however was a spring wreath. I normally like to make my own wreaths because I’m SUPER picky when it comes to wreaths, not to mention they are expensiveeeee. All of the wreaths I found both in stores and online that I REALLY liked were anywhere from $60-$80!
Well let me just say there was NO WAY I was going to pay that just for a wreath!
So I decided I might as well give it a stab and try to make my own and I was SO HAPPY with how it turned out!!
I actually wasn’t going to write a blog post over how I made it since it was just a spur of the moment sort of thing I decided to do and I didn’t take any pics during the process or anything like that, but I shared the finished product on my Insta stories and I had SO many people asked how I made it. So I figured I would go ahead and post the steps and link the products I used so if nothing else, you guys would have a rough guide to go off of.
As always, if you have any questions at all as you go through the process of making your own DIY Spring Wreath, feel free to comment below and I’ll be happy to answer! 🙂
Let’s get started…
(1) Yellow & White Waxflower Bundle
Step 1: Start with your plain grapevine wreath. Take your wire cutting scissors and cut about (4) 6-8 inch pieces of flower wire.
Step 2: Take the 2 pack of faux vines (there will be 2 different vine types) and start to loosely twist them to intertwine them together. After they are intertwined, lay them on top of the grapevine wreath and start to affix them to the wreath using the pieces of flower wire. (I would loop the flower wire through the vine pieces and then thread the flower wire through the wreath itself and twist the two ends together in the back to make sure it was secure.)
Step 3: Next, take your wire cutting scissors and start to cut the flowers off the yellow daisy bundles. Make sure to leave about 3-4 inches of the stem still attached to the flower. Do not cut the stem right near the base of the flower!! You’ll also want to cut the yellow & white waxflower bundle, however I didn’t cut each individual flower off. Instead, I cut at the very base of each flower stem so I was left with an entire stem of the flowers.
Step 4: Now you’ll start to affix the flowers to the wreath. I didn’t use any wire or glue to do this; I found the best and easiest way was just to stick the flower stems into the wreath itself. I chose which side I wanted to have the bow and flowers situated on and then started sticking the yellow daisies in one by one. I made sure to stick some pointing upward on the one side and others pointing downward so it would draw attention to the bow when I put that in the middle.
Step 5: After I had put all of the daisies in the wreath, I went around and stuck in the yellow & white waxflower stems on the sides and behind the daisies so they kind of poked through and just added some extra body to the wreath itself. Again, I added some pointing more upward and some pointing downward, just like the daisies.
Step 6: Lastly, I took the polka dot bow and put it right in the middle of where I started the flowers (I bought this bow premade because I was being lazy. If you want a bigger bow, you can make your own! Here is the polka dot ribbon by itself.) The bow already came with a twist-tie in the back so I was able to just thread that through the wreath itself and twist it in the back so that it was secure. (If you’re making your own bow, I would just cut a piece of flower wire about 6-8 inches long and use this to affix the bow to the wreath.)
And that’s it people! It took me all of half an hour and it wasn’t difficult at all. Plus I was able to get exactly what I wanted and for a cheaper price than I could have bought a wreath like this.
