I’m not Martha Stewart. Not even close. But I’ll be damned if I don’t try. One craft I’ve never really ventured into was wreath making, but this fall I thought it would be nice to have a pretty fall colored wreath on the door and Michael’s has so many shades. So I took the plunge and made my first wreath! Since it wasn’t a complete disaster (like my many previous craft fails), I thought I’d share it with anyone who wanted to give it a shot too.
One note on saving money: I bought my flowers right at the change of seasons. At the end of summer, Michael’s still had some fall colored flowers and they were all on sale. So I hoarded them for about a month and then turned them into this! Sometimes, it pays to have a collection of craft supplies.
Flower Wreath Tutorial
It’s a great Saturday morning project. Even if you struggle with cutting some of the stems off, like I did, it shouldn’t take you more that 45 min to finish.
- Styrofoam circle
- 3-4 small bundles of fake flowers in whatever colors you want
- Burlap ribbon
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- A sharp pair of scissors
- A pair of wire cutters
To hang it, I just cut a piece of yarn and tied it around the top.
