DIY Spring Wreath

So I’m strolling through the aisles of Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and just so happen to be there the week that all the flowers were 50 percent off. That my friends, is not a deal to pass up.

As I’m sifting through the rows of flower stems, it dawns on me that we haven’t done a seasonal wreath for spring and thus this DIY spring wreath was born.

This technique can be done with pretty much any faux stem, but I’m pretty partial to the ones I picked out.

THE SUPPLIES

Faux flower stems (I used yellow dahlias)

Faux greenery stems (I think this is boxwood…if you know different, feel free to share!)

Green foam wreath

Hot glue gun

Pen or pencil

THE PROCESS

Take the leaves and flowers off their stem.

Using a pen, poke an angled hole into the green foam. It should be fairly deep, but will depend on your faux flowers.

Squeeze some glue into the hole and quickly shove the plant stem inside before the glue cools.

Repeat this process until the entire wreath is covered.

I found it helps if you work in sections – poke a bunch of holes and fill each one rather than doing one at a time.

After the entire wreath was covered, I went back over and touched up the spaces that needed some more greenery. I didn’t cover the back, just the front and sides.

And in less than 45 minutes, you’ve got yourself a fun seasonal wreath!

All our best,

    This looks so pretty Kelly! I made a similar wreath this year but without the flowers, I wish I had seen this before I decided to make mine… Yours looks just so much cuter!!

    Very pretty for spring. Thanks for the detail in the how to. I never thought of poking holes so simple but what a great plan.

    I love wreaths of all kinds and this one looks so fresh and creative. Hard to tell it is made with fake flowers. Love it. Thanks for sharing.

    This is great! I love the idea of poking holes into the foam form.
