Last weekend I whipped up this simple wreath! I didn’t want to be too Easter-y so that it could last all through spring. So I attempted a fresh outdoorsy simple look!
*twig wreath- I got mine @ my local craft store. Less than $5.
*White flowers- I bought 2 long stems. They were 40% off. Although they are really long and have a lot of branches it’s better to buy the long ones.
*pink beads- I purchased a long strand of pink garland and again cut it into pieces. These might be found in the floral section.
*larger white/pink detail beads- I found a bunch of these in the spring decoration area
*glue gun and glue sticks
*brown marker (maybe!)
*ribbon in your color choice
Step 1: Cut the white floral strands into smaller parts. There is wire underneath the plastic, so wire cutters work best. Cut into about 6-9 inch pieces. Depending on your preference.
Step 2: Weave the flower strands through the twigs. You may need to apply small dots of hot glue to certain areas. Remember since there they are made of wire they bend easily.
Step 3: Cut apart beads using wire cutters. Because the stems were a bright green color I actually painstakingly used a brown marker to color them darker. Begin to apply these using a glue gun. They are fairly heavy, so sticking the wire ends into the wreath is not enough to hold them down. I concentrated them toward the bottom of the wreath.
Step 4: Cut apart pink bead garland using wire cutters. Again, it’s not necessary, but I colored the green garland brown so it blended better. Attach small pink garland pieces in the same fashion as the larger beads- either weaving the wire through the wreath or using the glue gun.
Step 5: I put a piece of sea-foam green ribbon at the top so I could hang it from my door. But I’m considering using a different color- maybe white?
And there you have it! Happy Spring!
