Faux flower wreath DIY
So, it is officially Spring, the clocks have changed and Easter is upon us. I was going to do an Easter wreath DIY but I wanted to make a wreath that I could keep up all Summer long. So, I decided to do a floral wreath instead. This was so easy to make and it only took me an afternoon to do. Like my other DIY’s I have put together a quick video on my Youtube for you to check out and I will make sure to leave it at the bottom of this post.
What you will need
This is a great DIY if you want to use up old faux flowers in your home. I am a hoarder of faux flowers, I just love them.
– Polystyrene ring, I picked mine up in Inspiring Ideas for €1.99
– Faux flowers, I used up some old ones and I picked up some bunches in Inspiring Ideas, You can also pick some up online from Amazon, eBay, Wish and I find Tk Maxx and Homesense great for faux flowers too.
– Wire cutters, Cutting the stems of the faux flowers can be hard as a lot of them have wire stems. I recommend using wire cutters.
– Glue Gun or clear drying glue.
– Faux Moss ( optional ) I had some faux moss in my kit from previous DIY’s that I had originally picked up from Inspiring Ideas.
The first thing I did was I deadheaded all of my flowers. Using my wire cutters I trimmed off the stems and made sure to leave roughly an inch of the stem as you use this inch to them into your polystyrene ring. Be careful when cutting the wire and protect your hands by using gloves if you need to.
Once I had removed the flower heads from the stems I then started to place the flowers into the polystyrene ring. You can have fun and get creative and place the flowers how you like it. I put the larger flowers at the bottom the smaller ones at the top. Once you are happy with how it looks you can then use your glue gun and stick them into place.
I applied faux moss at the top of my wreath. If you have enough flowers you can add them to the whole wreath but if like me you have run out of flowers then applying faux moss to the top is a great way of finishing your wreath. I had seen this done on some wreaths on Pinterest. I used my glue gun to apply the pieces of faux moss.
Once I was finished I added a bow to my wreath, I felt it needed something to finish it off. I used some pink ribbon and I tied it into a bow and used my glue gun to apply it to the top of my wreath. You can also use your glue gun to apply a hook to the back of your wreath to make it easier to hang it on your door.
As it is Easter this weekend you could easily style yours up with some eggs, bunnies or trinkets from the craft shop. There were loads of Easter decor ideas in the craft shop. Once you are armed with your glue gun you can let your imagination run wild.
You can then have fun styling this up in your house, You can hang it on your front door or use it to style up your doors inside your house. I am going to pop mine on my front door for the weekend and then I will style it up in my hallway on my bathroom door. I love how a wreath can add a pop of colour to space.
