How to DIY Spring Wreath - Step by Step
Watch the full video here of how exactly I put this together.
- Start with the lamb ears - trim lamb's ears short at the base and layout on the lower left part of the wreath. Half of them will be traveling upwards and the bottom half facing down. Hot glue down.
- Layer in flowers - trim the pink flowers down at the base and hot glue in the middle and outwards. Work with odd numbers and layer different sizes next to each other.
- Flip over and layer purple branches - because the wooden bead wreath is very slim and they move a bit, I found it easier to flip over and tuck in the branches on the back. These are flimsy and add a whimsical layer and element. Flip back over and hot glue pieces down to stay in place (especially the one going up).
- Fill in the hole - hold up and look at it far away from every now and then. once you have put the big pieces in, start filling in the holes with single lamb ears and small flower pieces.
Tips When Making a Wreath Yourself
These are a couple of things I think through when making my own wreaths that apply no matter what the color or theme is.
- Look for different textures. Find different types of leaves, fillers, flowers, etc. Texture adds elements and depth.
- Pick out some "flimsy" pieces. The purple flower branches are flexible and "flimsy". This helps gives a different texture and layer instead of big flower buds and greenery. They are easy to stick in holes and are flexible to mold where you need them to go.
- Use the leaves from the floral stems. I wanted the flower buds from the pink ranunculus stems, but using the leaves off floral stems can help fill in holes when putting the finishing touches up.
The biggest thing I do no matter what type of wreath I am making is a layer with the big leaf pieces first, use an off number of main florals, and constantly fill in holes and gaps with extra fillers and leaves until the look is complete.
There are no rules or right way to do this. Use your creativity and make it your own! This is just a guiding point to help you get started!
