I love welcoming springtime with bright blooms! This year, I decided to outfit my front porch with a bold flower wreath using a wire wreath form and colored burlap ribbon from Dollar Tree. I chose my favorite color to create petals that coordinated with my blooming flowerbeds, but you can also cater it to match your front door color. With proper construction and gentle care, wreaths will store well for the winter keeping its shape for next spring.
Stock Up on Supplies:
- Wire Wreath Forms
- Hot Glue Gun (Not Sold at Dollar Tree)
- Hot Glue Sticks
- Burlap Ribbon – Green, Pink, and Natural
- Foam Disks
- Chenille Stems
Time to Spruce Up Your Décor:
- Use scissors to trim six green strips of burlap, each about 5-6 inches in length for the flower leaves. Trim the entire spool of the pink (or preferred colored) burlap ribbon to the same length for petals.
- Join two opposing corners of green together, squeeze, and secure with a chenille stem.
- Attach your leaves to each outer section of the wire wreath form twisting into place.
- Repeat this process with all of the pink petals, attaching them to the 6 tiered sections of the wreath form.
- Once all petals have been twisted secure, create a grid center with chenille stems and set your wreath aside.
- Use hot glue to roll and secure natural burlap ribbon into a long coil, about 4 feet long. Use additional hot glue to apply the coil to the center of your foam disk, twisting and gluing secure around the disk, forming the center of your flower.
- Once the foam disk is completely covered, attach the disk to the chenille stem grid with hot glue.
- Hang your wreath from a hanger on your front door as the perfect addition to the blooming outdoors!
