Floral wreaths are a beautiful way to celebrate the seasons and various holidays. Wreaths are usually displayed during Christmas with rich red and elegant gold ribbons. However, spring, summer and fall are the ideal time to show off your love for these incredible seasons. These three DIY floral wreaths are sure to be the perfect addition to your front door, family room, or backyard.
Before you get started on any floral wreath project, you will need the following tools and florist supplies:
- A plain wreath (made out of either wood or greenery)
- A hot glue gun
- Hot glue gun sticks
- Floral stems
- Ribbon (a perfect accent to any floral wreath)
After you have these handy floral supplies in your possession, it’s time to start crafting. Below are three DIY exciting floral wreath ideas.
A Vibrant Purple Wreath Sprinkled with Pops of Yellow
This season, purple is in style. A vibrant purple wreath sprinkled with pops of yellow might be the answer to your backyard. For this wreath, use artificial or silk African violets for a smaller design, or dahlias for a larger look. Using daffodils sporadically for this vibrant wreath design or marigolds are perfect for the yellow portions. Adding three or four bright pink roses will give this wreath a splash of extra color.
A Heart-Shaped Wreath of Beautiful Blues
When visiting your local craft store, you’ll see a few different frames for your wreath. One popular design is a bare heart shape, which looks absolutely breathtaking with a few blue hues. This wreath works best with smaller flowers, such as artificial morning glories, forget-me-nots, and hydrangeas.
A Pretty-in-Pink Wreath
With a wreath that’s pretty in pink, you can celebrate not only the summertime, but the birth of a baby girl, a close female friend’s birthday, or even a wedding. To achieve the best pink-themed floral wreath, select a mixture of flowers in varying sizes. Large magenta anemones, peonies, and tulips will do the trick. Make sure there is a lighter pink flower to go with the magenta stems; these can be dianthuses, phloxes, or petunias (a popular summertime flower). Last but not least, add a dash of white flower roses, which accentuate the wreath nicely.
This season, decorate your house and backyard with the most gorgeous wreaths. Whether you choose a vibrant purple wreath, a heart-shaped blue wreath, or a pretty-in-pink wreath, you will be sure to make your guests and family feel the spirit of every season.
