DIY Spring Wreath With Flowers

DIY spring wreath with flowers

I asked my mom what she wanted for Mother’s Day and she said a wreath. Then, she sent me to her Pinterest board with a bunch of wreaths she recently pinned. “Something like those”, she said. All of them were flower wreaths, mostly with tulips and other spring flowers. So I went to Pat Catan’s and searched for an arrangement that might look good together. You didn’t think I was going to buy it if I could make it, did you? Something handmade makes a better Mother’s Day gift anyway.

So, I grabbed all of the materials I needed and headed to my parent’s house for the weekend. I remembered my glue gun, but forgot extra glue sticks. I got about half way through my project before I ran out. Thankfully, mom had a glue gun that I could use to finish up. This was the first Make Something Mondays craft my mom has been able to experience first hand. She even helped a little bit.

Step 1
Pull the flowers and leaves off of the stems and arrange them into piles according to color so that you can find the flowers you want easily.

Step 2
Hot glue the flowers and leaves to your wreath base. You will probably burn yourself a few times, but make sure you press the flowers down into the glue or they won’t stick very well.

Repeat until you’ve worked your way around the entire base. Then, go back and fill in the areas that could use some extra color.

Add a string or a ribbon to the top of the wreath and hang it up. Beautiful!

If your wreath is going to be semi-exposed to the outdoors, you can always go back with super glue to make sure the flowers don’t detach. This one is going to be between a door and a screen, so it should be fine without the super glue.

Mom loves it, so I guess it’s doing its job :-)

Happy crafting!
