tutorial: spring wreath

I have been wanting a pretty spring wreath for our door, but I am kind of picky about wreaths. Lately I have been drawn to more vintage-y, girly, pretty things. So I decided to make a vintage-y girly, pretty wreath.


Here is what you need to make it:

  • Foam Wreath
  • Pins
  • Pearls
  • Fabric Flowers (I bought a bush of hydrangeas and pulled the blooms off)
  • Scrap cloth for making a hanger
String a pearl onto one of the pins, then add on the flower.

 


Insert the pin onto the wreath.


Keep going...


And going...


And going...


Until your wreath is completely full.


Cut a strip of scrap cloth, hang, and enjoy!

  4. Allison,
    This is such a pretty, feminine wreath! Oh so beautiful on your white door.
    I am making this one for sure. I just might make tiny wreaths and use them for napkin rings. Perfection!
    You have a lovely blog!

  5. Thanks Yvonne! I think a version of this would make really pretty napkin holders - just maybe with hot glue instead of pins :)

    Glad you enjoyed my blog!

    Angie - it really didn't take that long... maybe an hour to an hour and a half. But my neck sure did hurt from looking down at it :) Glad you like it!

  12. This is so beautiful. I will be copying your idea. We have double front doors and this looks like a fairly inexpensive way to decorate them.
