Welcome to the first DIY on the blog! I'm super excited to share with you how you can create this pretty spring wreath. It looks amazing and will cost you less than $30 by the time you're done! Keep reading to see how I made this happen.
Ok so the secret to making this wreath on a budget is to shop on a budget. I was able to get my wreath base at Micheal's with a coupon that was about half price off. For all of my florals and foliage I was able to find great stuff at the dollar store! You might have to look at a few dollar stores depending on what they have in stock and the look you are going for.
You are going to need the following materials:
Step One: arranging & applying florals
For the first step you'll want to take all of your foliage and florals and pull them off of their stems. Once you've done this start to arrange them in a way that you would like on the wreath. Once you've arranged them accordingly it's time to start sticking them onto wreath. Usually fake florals will have a sharp point at the fase of the flower. To apply them to the base you need to pierce the base like the photo below. After you've attached every floral element it's tiem to get the hot glue gun and further adhere them in place.
Step two: applying foliage
Once you've got the florals taken care of it's time to add the foliage. This next step takes your wreath from good to amazing! Since the base of the leaves don't have a sharp point to apply to the base you will need to hot glue these. I found that there is no rhyme or reason to applying foliage and applying it where ever gives it that organic and natural element.
Step three: add the ribbon
This is the last step and the finishing touch to your wreath. All that's left to do is carefully tie a ribbon around it, leaving enough room for it to hang nicely. And that's it, you're all done!
