Nothing says "spring is here!" like a spread of flowers (faux or fresh) throughout our homes and this year I decided to add a DIY floral wreath into the mix. My very first spring home tour went live on the blog last week, you can check it out here.
While refreshing my home for spring, my fireplace mantle was looking a little naked. Instead of running out to the store to purchase a wreath, I decided to make one. This spring floral wreath DIY took me just minutes to put together. Let me take you through it!
Grab a grapevine wreath, some faux florals and some greenery. Vary the colors of your faux florals to add interest to the wreath. I used varying shades of pink and used both roses and cherry blossoms to add some dimension to the wreath.
Cut the stems on your faux florals into about 2-3 inches. This will allow you to twist the stems around the grapevine. Do the same for your greenery if you are using long stems.
Add your greenery in 4-5 corners of your grapevine wreath. You can think of this as the pillars or anchors of your wreath.
Add your large florals first. Spread them out and twist the stems around the grapevine. For a fuller look, add your florals to the insides and outsides of the wreath.
Finish off the wreath by tucking in the smaller floral stems in between the larger ones. Again, be sure to vary the sizes and colors of your flowers to add contrast and visual interest. Once you are happy with how it looks, fluff the greenery and the petals on your florals to make the wreath appear full.
All done! Hang it on your mantle or any door in your home and admire it all season long!
