Modern Spring Floral Wreath DIY
I don’t know about you but this crazy Georgia weather has me craving Spring something fierce! And what better way to usher in Spring, than doing some Spring crafting! The new wreath trend these days take no time at all. Beyond easy and you can customize your wreath to your liking!
3-4 large blooms (i.e. I used large roses)
2-3 bundles of coordinating greenery*
1 bundle of smaller accent blooms
2-3 succulent sprigs
14 inch embroidery hoop
hot glue and glue gun
step one: prepare the leaves and flowers.
Remove leaves from the bundles. Sometimes they pop off the stems, and sometimes they need to be snipped off with wire snips. Cut the large rose stems down to about 5-6 inches.
step two: add roses.
Start by adding the major players. You don’t have to add all of the roses at first. You’ll need to start with most of them in place though so you have an idea of where you can start adding leaves.
For the most secure hold, bend the stems to fit around the embroidery hoop and then wind floral wire around both the hoop and stem. Twist the ends of the floral wire together and bend sharp ends under with your pliers. You can then bend the heads of the roses however you need after that.
step three: add greenery and accent flowers.
Start adding the largest leaves of greenery with floral wire or hot glue. Then add in smaller pieces of greenery, the succulents, and the small accent blooms.
The great thing about fake flowers, is that there is a lot of room for error. Play around with it and move things around until you’re happy with how it looks.
Once you’re in love with your wreath, add more hot glue to ensure everything is secure.
That’s all there is to it! Now go and get your wreath on, Alexans!
