Spring Wreath Tutorial
You know those projects that you are so excited to go get the supplies and do it and then you bring it home and it sits forever because you can’t motivate yourself to actually do the project?! Well, yeah, me neither. Except this is exactly what happened to me!
This project has been sitting and waiting to be assembled for over a month (our kitchen table is thanking me right now!). I finally got to it this weekend. And so happy that our door has a spring wreath on it. This is a super easy project and took me probably only 30 minutes.
Step One: Gather your supplies
-5 fake flowers
-Letter or Numbers (if you want to do your house number)
-Paint & Paintbrush
Step Two: Paint your letter. I chose red to match the burlap ribbon I purchased
Step Three: Trim flowers
Step Four: Attach flowers to wreath. I used the floral wire and wrapped it around the base of the flower. Then twisted the wire around the wreath to make sure the flowers don’t move (See below)
Step Five: Adhere letter and make bow. I didn’t know how to adhere the letter without showing the wire….So, right now the wire is visible. I put some red paint over it to make it less noticeable. I really don’t mind it because it is not that noticeable.
Now, on to the bow. Seriously, I think this is why I put off this project because I knew the bow would be a pain. I used this video and finally figured out the bow. Truthfully (after almost having a breakdown) the bow is too big, the loops are too large, there are too many loops, etc. etc. Can you tell I’m not 100% happy with this stupid bow? But hey, it will work for now.
Step Six: Hang your wreath!
