Hi, it’s Melanie from It Happens in a Blink again! I’m back with a quick and easy Summer Wreath. This project can be made in under thirty minutes.
- Small grapevine wreath
- Large sunflower
- Small white flowers
- Floral wire
- Wire cutters
- Mini Bowdabra
- White ribbon
- Bowdabra bow wire
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Optional: floral tape
Start by placing the large sunflower in the lower right corner of the wreath. Cut the stem of the sunflower to be even with the back of the wreath. Use floral wire to secure the flower stem to the wreath.
Turn the wreath to the front and place the white flowers throughout the wreath. Do the same with them as the sunflower, trimming the stems and using the floral wire to secure.
Use the wire cutters to trim the wire surrounding all the flowers. At this point, examine the wire and make sure that none of it is protruding or sticking out too far. If it is, you may consider wrapping floral tape around the wire.
The floral arrangement around the wreath is now complete, and it’s time to make the ribbon and bow hanger for the wreath.
Cut a length of ribbon. Tie it in a knot, leaving an approximate 2″ hole for hanging.
Using the glue gun, secure the raw edges of the ribbon around the top of the wreath.
Now it’s time to make the bow! Grab the Mini Bowdabra. Place a length of Bowdabra bow wire through the middle. Lay a piece of white ribbon through the middle.
Form the bow in the Mini Bowdabra.
Use the bow wire to pull the bow up and secure.
Hot glue the bow over the knot in the ribbon hanger.
And that’s it!
