DIY Silk WildFlower Summer Wreath

Summer is fast approaching.  The days are getting longer and warmer and soon the snow will be melted on the mountain tops.  That is when the wildflowers begin to bloom and I was inspired to create this DIY silk wildflower summer wreath.

Wildflowers always remind me of childhood days spent camping in the mountains during the summer.  I loved seeing the huge meadows filled with flowers of ever color.  I still do.  This wreath was inspired by those great memories.

 

Supplies You Need for This Project

  1. Grapevine wreath in the size of your choice.  I just happened to have this 12-inch wreath on hand so I used that.
  2. Silk flowers of your choice.  I found these at my local craft store, they always have amazing flowers there.
  3. Glue gun with glue.
  4. Wire snips.

DIY Silk Wildflower Summer Wreath

 

To get started I cut my flowers off the main stem to break them down so that they lay flatter and I can have more control on arranging them how I want.  I love my wreaths to look pretty random, i.e. NOT perfect.  For this wreath, I wanted it to almost appear as if I had picked these out of a field of flowers and just scattered them on the wreath.  Glue the larger flowers on first, the smaller blooms will get lost if they are added before the larger ones.

You can group your flowers on a table surface before gluing to get an idea of how they will look.  I also have put the flowers on the wreath before gluing just to get an idea of how I want to place them, it is entirely up to you and what you like.

Continue to glue your flowers on until you have the look you want.  I love flowers so I tend to use a lot of them.  Go ahead and use as many or as few as you want to suit your taste.

When you are finished you have a beautiful brightly colored wreath that will look perfect anywhere.

      Oh, thank you! Up until recently I hadn’t really done much for summer either there are so many pretty options with flowers that I just couldn’t resist 🙂 Glad you liked it!

    This is SO cute!! I would have to use a different flower because sadly I am allergic to lavender haha! But this is truly an adorable wreath and I am always looking for good wreath ideas! Thanks for sharing.

    There’s something so relaxing about making wreaths! I took up this hobby for a time last fall and now have a collection of flowers, ribbon, and bows throughout the house! One of my favorite styles was a grapevine wreath with larger flowers on it. Your wreath is cute! I think that my personal style would add one focal point to it as well, but I just love the little flowers!

      I agree, making wreaths is one of my favorite projects. I love having collections of wreath making supplies all over my craft room. I do like to have a focal point most of the time, with this one I just like the randomness of it 🙂

      Oh, I am so sorry. I have been having some issues with them today and I am not sure why, working on fixing it. Thank you for commenting anyway 🙂

    This is beautiful. I love wildflowers! And I love the silk ones that look real but don’t go bad! This even looks gorgeous inside on your wall. Such a great idea, I never would think to put a wreath inside. Great tutorial!

      Thank you so much! I had never thought about a wreath inside until a few years ago when I just tried it to see if I liked it and I was hooked 🙂

    This is very cute. And your instructions were easy to follow. I made one earlier this spring. Don’t you love the simple with a big impact? Thank you for sharing yours.

    This is wonderful. Your wreath shouts Spring and Summer season. When I think of wreath, I only think of Christmas wreath even though I see a lot of them all year round. I might just ask my wife to make one for us.
