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
- Grapevine wreath in the size of your choice. I just happened to have this 12-inch wreath on hand so I used that.
- Silk flowers of your choice. I found these at my local craft store, they always have amazing flowers there.
- Glue gun with glue.
- Wire snips.
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.
Have fun with it and bring some summer flowers inside your home. I promise it will make you smile every time you look at it. Also coming soon I will be sharing a round-up of fun wreaths I have made over the years that will hopefully inspire you to get creating!Share This:
