When someone says the word “spring,” what images come to your mind? I think of Paris cafes with striped awnings and outdoor tables adorned with roses. Window boxes filled with spring blooms, or a bicycle with a basket on the front, loaded with flowers, also comes to mind. If you want to add some spring flowers to your home, my Spring Bouquet Wreath is beautiful, easy to assemble, and inexpensive! I wanted this wreath to have a retro 1970s feel, so I incorporated green, yellow, and orange hues from that era.
- 18” twig wreath
- green gingham ribbon 1 1/2”
- floral wire
- floral picks in orange, purple, yellow, and white
- orange bead pick (steal one from your fall stash)
- scissors for fabric and trimming wire
This wreath was fast and easy! First, I added the lavender and hyacinth flower picks. The great thing about a twig wreath is that you can tuck the floral picks in between the wood pieces. If you want to change the wreath later, the flowers are easily removed.
Next, add the orange tulips and yellow Gerber daisies.
Tuck the white daisies just below the hyacinth flowers, in between the Gerber daisies and tulips.
Now it’s time to make the bow! I used the whole $1.97 roll of unwired green gingham ribbon. First, cut downward triangles on each end of the ribbon with the fabric scissors.
Cut two 8” pieces of floral wire with the utility scissors.
Leave a 6” length of ribbon for the tail, then fold the ribbon like an accordion, keeping each fold the same size. I had 7 folds, then left another length of ribbon at the end, for the other ribbon tail.
Twist one of your 8” pieces of wire around the middle of the ribbon- make it tight.
Arrange the loops, twisting them up and down, and filling out the bow.
When you’re satisfied with the results, you can slide the other wire through the middle of the bow, and use it to attach the bow to the wreath, or you can use the ends from the wire you used to hold the ribbon together. After I added the bow, I tucked in the orange bead picks from my fall stash.
You’re all finished! I hope you enjoyed my Spring Bouquet Wreath!
