DIY Spring Floral Wreath

DIY Spring Floral Wreath | read more at happilythehicks.comI am all about flowers this spring! It’s one of the things I love the most about this season… It makes me so happy to look at all the bright colors, beautiful bouquets and gorgeous scenery. Living in Texas has spoiled me, because there are wildflowers everywhere and when you get out of the city, there is field after field peppered with flowers. It makes me sad to know that the flowers will die soon with the temperatures rising (yesterday it got up to 92!), so I need to enjoy them while I can!

My sweet brother-in-law gave me a $50 Michael’s gift card for my birthday, and as I walked around the store the other day, I racked my brain for what I wanted to get with the gift card. I knew I wanted to make something for my apartment, and as I passed the floral section, inspiration struck! Since I’ve been in a spring-y mood lately, I decided to make a fun floral wreath for my front door. I bought four bunches of flowers* (which were all 60% off) and an 18″ grapevine wreath as my base (which was only $4.99). I love how it turned out and it was so so easy to make! Best of all, the whole project only cost me $18, so I have plenty of money left over for another fun project… What will I make now?

*I also used some flowers I already had to help fill in the wreath. See? It pays off to be a crafting hoarder.

18″ grapevine wreath
Hot glue gun and glue
Scissors/wire cutters

1. Cut the flowers you want to use off their main stem using the scissors or wire cutter (I recommend a wire cutter because you’ll ruin the scissors. I already had some that were messed up, so I used those!). Leave about 3-4 inches of the individual flower’s stem- makes building the wreath easier.

2. Stick in the wispy, long pieces along the part of the wreath that you want the flowers. These will be the “frame” of the wreath.

3. Place your larger flowers where you want them. I tried to keep things balanced so it wouldn’t look weird. To place them in the wreath, I just stick the flower’s stem into the grapevine wreath as far as I can to make sure it stays firm and in place.

4. Fill in with smaller flowers and a few other longer, wispier pieces.

5. Rearrange and add/remove until you get what you like!

6. Hot glue the flowers to the grapevine wreath. I tried to glue the base of the actual flower to the wreath, but I also glued down some of the stems. Make sure you get some glue in around the backside of the wreath too! This is to make sure you don’t have flowers flying off when the winds pick up.
