Down here in Georgia, we’re practically begging for spring weather. Us southerns are not cold weather people, we didn’t sign up for this “winter in March” business! In an effort to spring up the house, I made a wreath that is bright and cheerful and just maybe the weather will follow suit! One can hope anyway…
What You’ll Need: Wreath Form (foam or straw), Fabric, Faux Flowers, Wire/Faux Flower Cutters, Glue, Twine
Cut your fabric into strips and begin wrapping and gluing it around the form. I used an old table runner that my parents weren’t using anymore. (aka FREE!) I went with the straw form simply because it was cheaper. The foam will work just fine but I like the “plumpness” of the straw one. Beware, it is MESSY and you’re going to need a vacuum when you’re done!
This is where you’ll need those wire/flower cutters. Snip the flowers as close to the petals as possible. The closer you are, the flatter the flower will be so it’s easier to glue to the form. Arrange the flowers until you reach your desired look.
Wrap the twine around the top in a wide stripe and, once its wide enough, add a separate piece in the middle and tie it to form a loop for hanging.
I’m in love with my wreath, and while it doesn’t quite feel like spring outside, at least it’s sunny!
