I know I’ve been absent from my blog for a while but life has been so so busy! But I’m back with a cute little spring craft that was super easy to make. I think it maybe took me a total of 10-15 minutes to get it how I wanted.
I took a trip to my local Hobby Lobby (you can go to whatever craft store you want!) and went straight to the fake flower section to pick out a few to use. I chose hydrangeas because 1. they’re gorgeous and 2. they remind me so much of spring! I also went with a nice cream color and a light green! They can be quite expensive but Hobby Lobby usually has a 50% off deal (which is AMAZING!!).
Then I went on the hunt for the actual ring. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to buy a metal ring and wrap it with ribbon or buy the twig ring.. but in the end I loved the look of the intertwined twigs!
Then I picked out some ribbon for a bow to add the final touch. I love the look of burlap so that is kinda what I gravitated towards! But you can choose whatever kind of ribbon you like, or if you have any already laying around the house that is good too! I bought two different kinds but only ended up using one, which you’ll see soon!
Yay let’s get started! So, here is a picture of what you’ll need (minus the one roll of ribbon that I ended up not using):
- Wreath Ring
- (Not pictured in the group because I forgot) Wire cutters and possibly hot glue gun!
(Wire cutters look like this!)
Set your ring to the side to start, you’ll come back to that later!
Now lets work on the flowers! Usually the stems of the flowers when you buy them are super long, but we don’t need them that long for our wreath. Take your wire cutters and snip the ends, leaving about 2 inches or so left. This was a struggle for me using my tiny wire cutters, so be cautious! You may need some extra help with this step since some wires are thicker than others.
Next I stuck the wires in between the little branches and made sure they didn’t stick out very far in the back or else the wreath would not lay nicely on the surface where you’re hanging it!
I arranged the flowers off center to the left and bunched them up like this:
Finally I tied a bow using my ribbon of choice!
I noticed my flowers needed an extra bit of security so I hot glued the stems on to the branches and did the same with the bow!
YAY! So this is the result, I hung it on my door and I absolutely love it! You can play around with it more, maybe put the flowers on the other side, or add a bigger bow! I just went for a simple and elegant look for spring.
Thanks for reading! xoxo
