DIY Floral Wreath

James and I love feeling and being festive.  We are definitely that couple that turns on the Christmas music when hanging ornaments on the tree. And yes, I also decorate for Fall while drinking cider. But why not decorate for summer too? This floral wreath is the perfect touch to your front door, back porch, or wherever your summer-y self desires.

What you’ll need: 

I got most of this stuff from Amazon or my favorite craft supply store, Hobby Lobby.

Pro tip:  Buy florals at the end of the season when they go on sale. We bought our Christmas wreath florals after Christmas, and fall florals at the end of autumn. 

#1 Prep & Arrange

Use the wire cutters to cut flower to desired length. Remember to leave enough length to tuck the stems into the wreath to secure them. It will also help create that layered look. Arrange your flowers and greenery on your wreath. Try starting with larger flowers as your “centerpiece” and build out from there.

Layer, layer, layer! This is not a sticker book, people. Tuck and weave your flowers and leaves together so it looks like a chain of flowers, or a cohesive unit.

Once you are happy with your design, take a picture. Gently remove the flowers and place them next to the wreath where you’d like to place them. This will make it easier to recreate your design.

#2 Tuck & Glue

Start with your “centerpiece” that we talked about earlier. Tuck or weave the stems into your wreath, and then hot glue the stem to the wreath. This will help anchor your centerpiece. Don’t worry if the stems are long and exposed, you’ll cover them up later. Layer, remember!?

Now, start with the pieces closer to the centerpiece and move up from there. Remember to tuck the stems into the wreath as you go, and use hot glue to secure the stem or floral to the wreath. I hot glued several different points at the base of the leaf or flower.

#3 Finishing Touches

Carefully remove the leftover strings from the hot glue, add a wire to the back, and hang up the pretty thing!

I’ve also made a Christmas and fall version!

I did this with my mom and sisters. Here are all the finished products for some more inspo:

Happy Summer!
