Whimsical Spring Wreath Tutorial

I am dreaming of Spring
so ready for brighter scenery and warmer weather. 
{seasonal depression anyone?! ;)}
Well, if Mother Nature isn’t bringing it yet, at least we can bring it with our decor. 
Here is a simple, fun and whimsical Spring wreath tutorial for ya.  To brighten your day, & if I’m not alone in this…brighten your mood. :)

  • wispy grapevine wreath
  • moss flower or other spring like accent
  • silk poppies
  • boxwood greens
  • spring blossom stems
  • jute ribbon
  • hot glue
  • wire
  • moss
Start by hanging your wreath with your jute ribbon. You could do this at the end as well, but this way you won’t have to mess with your completed wreath.

Position your moss flower (mine is from Michaels) or other decorative piece where you would like,then secure with floral wire.

Next, add in your flowers with a bit of hot glue and wire if needed.  Arrange them somewhat evenly without getting too much of a uniform look.  You want them to look as if they are growing right out of the wreath. Cover up any stems with moss pieces…this adds more texture to the design while covering up glue drips, etc.

Now fill it in with your greens. Working around the center of the wreath in the direction of the grapevine.  Then add in your longer blossoms and stems for a wispy three dimensional look.  Keep adding until you reach your desired look.  It’s your wreath, there is no right or wrong. :)
I hope this gets your creative juices flowing and gives you some inspiration and ideas for your Spring decor.  :)

Getting linky with it…
