All it takes is a little bit of patience to make this super easy, beautiful wreath.
My dad has a huge stack of old windows for me and I finally getting around to making a few craft project with them. When I went to hang this lovely teal frame I felt like it needed something. Luckily, I got these white flowers on sale for a few cents at dollar general. Here are the steps to creating a wreath like mine.
The supplies list for this project is very short. All you need is flowers, floral wire and a trimmer.
Here are some great examples from Amazon:
These are some of the products that I used or suggestions for something similar:
Depending on how full you want the wreath, you may need more flowers. There were 7 flowers on each of the stems that I had and I used 9 in all. However; I had a lot of flowers crammed together so you might not need that many.
Trim the stems of the flowers to just a few inches. Three or four inches should be perfect.
Then trim some of the stems to about twice as long to ensure some stability.
Next, bend all the flower stems to a 90 degree angle so the flowers will be facing out while the stems can be connected.
Bunch a few of them together with the flowers facing up. Use one of the longer stems bunched with a few of the shorter stems.
Now comes the fun part. Wrap the stems with flower wire, pulling it tight. Then add a few more and keep wrapping the wire. There's no need to trim the wire. Just keep adding more flowers and twisting the wire around it.
Once you have a long line of flowers chained together, curve the ends so they meet.
Then all you need to do is use the wire to connect the stems from one end to the next. Make sure you pull them tight enough together so there is not a gap.
I used a little bit more of the wire to add a loop for hanging my wreath, but a nice big ribbon would also look lovely.
Let me know how your wreath making goes! I would love to see pictures.
