I love flowers and springtime! So, when I looked out the window and all I could see were snow covered hills, I decided to think Spring! I made this wreath a few weeks before Valentine’s Day so it could serve a duel purpose. I wanted a classy, shabby chic-esk wreath that doubled as a Valentine’s Day decoration. This project took me all of 30 minutes. The majority of my time was spent cutting the flower stems down to a smaller length. I also played around with the layout of the flowers. If you aren’t too picky on the layout, this beautiful wreath could be turned out in 20 minutes; the time frame of my son’s nap that day!
Foam Wreath ($5 at Walmart)
15 Flowers ($2 a piece at Walmart! Can you believe these beautiful flowers are a Walmart find?)
Clear Plastic Wreath Holder ($1.50 at Walmart)
Burlap Ribbon (Michael’s $2.99 on sale)
Start by cutting down stems to about an inch and a half. Then play with the layout of the flowers. I have found that laying flowers out ahead of time helps you visualize the compatible colors and flowers, while pointing out the spots that are a bit bare. After you have decided upon where you want the flowers to go, just push the stems into the foam wreath until they are secure. No glue gun necessary! After you have placed your flowers, weave the burlap ribbon in and around the flowers. Hang your wreath up on the clear hook and you are ready to take in the first glimpse of Spring!
