With spring quickly approaching, I decided to create a new wreath for my front door. I just love my quick and easy bright floral wreath! The red, orange and yellow flowers show up so well against the dark color of my front door. Follow my 4-step tutorial and see how easy it will be to make a wreath of your own.
QUICK AND EASY BRIGHT FLORAL WREATH
I wanted to stretch my budget by making a wreath that could be used for spring through the summer. Also, the flower color combination needed to coordinate with my 2 red Adirondack front porch chairs and yellow striped pillows. Yep, that’s right, they’re plastic chairs. I’m very frugal!
I purchased my supplies at AC Moore (update – now closed), and the wreath, flowers and greenery totaled $44.00. Considering that I’m using this wreath for both spring and summer, the cost is really not too bad.
- grapevine wreath
- 4 floral bushes – mine had a few greenery sprigs attached
- 2 greenery bushes – geranium leaves
- 1 greenery bush – water hyacinth leaves
- wire clippers
- floral wire for hanging
I started with a grapevine wreath and garden clippers. You can use any tool that’s sharp enough to clip the wire in the floral and greenery bushes.
STEP 1: PREPARE THE FLOWERS AND GREENERY
Clip the flowers and greenery off at the base of each stem. Make like piles of flowers and greenery. Push the leaves up the flower stems so they are under the flower.
I love that this project does not require any florist wire or hot glue for attaching the stems! Start poking your cut pieces into the grapevine wreath, just like I did when I made my easy fall porch wreath update. Since hanging my wreath on my front door, I’ve had no problems with anything falling off the wreath.
STEP 2: START ADDING FLOWERS TO THE WREATH
I started with the yellow lilies, and continued varying the color placement for the rest of the flowers.
Once I used all the flowers, my wreath looked nice and full!
STEP 3: ADD THE GREENERY STEMS TO THE WREATH
Place the geranium and hyacinth stems to fill in where it looks like greenery needs to be. Now, add the few greenery springs that you had snipped from the floral bushes.
STEP 4: PREPARE TO HANG THE WREATH
I used florist wire to hang the wreath on my door hanger.
- snip off about 10 to 12 inches of florist wire
- carefully loop wire around the top of wreath pulling wire ends towards the back of wreath
- determine the best length for hanging your wreath
- twist wire to close your loop and snip the extra wire
Now, you’re all set to make your own quick and easy bright floral wreath! Will you be using bright and colorful flowers for your wreath or a different color scheme?
