Supplies:

  • Small grapevine wreath
  • Large sunflower
  • Small white flowers

  • Scissors
  • Mini Bowdabra
  • White ribbon
  • Bowdabra bow wire

Directions:

DIY Summer Wreath Tutorial for Front Door Decoration

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.
