Simple Spring Wreath {a tutorial}

Simple Spring Wreath Tutorial

April showers have brought about the inspiration for some Spring flowers…in wreath form.

All of the supplies needed for this wreath were purchased at my nearby Hobby Lobby. {I’m sure you can find the supplies at any local arts and crafts store. Don’t forget to use your 40% off coupons to save some cash!} Best part, this wreath was complete from start to finish in less than one hour!

Ready to get started? Gather your supplies. You’ll need a straw wreath form {leave the plastic wrap on, it’s less messy that way.}, one roll of burlap ribbon, one roll of pink chevron tulle ribbon, one roll of green chevron tulle ribbon, five burlap rose flower picks, a pair of scissors and a few straight pins {no hot glue. YAY!}.

Begin by wrapping your wreath form with the burlap ribbon. Secure the beginning and the end of your burlap ribbon with straight pins. {I folded the burlap in half so that it was a bit thicker and less see-through.}

Next, use your green chevron tulle ribbon to create grass.
Spring Wreath Tutorial
1. Cut pieces of tulle about 24 inches long. Fold one in half and place under wreath, as shown in step one.
2. Place ends through loop.
3. Pull upwards.
4. Tighten and direct tulle upward.

Repeat those steps until you have about six inches or so across the bottom of the wreath covered to the fullness of your liking.

Grab your burlap flower picks and poke them carefully in between the tulle “grass” and through the burlap ribbon into the wreath form. It sounds more difficult than it is. They will go right in as long as you guide them through the layers.

It’s time to trim your grass. There’s no right or wrong way to do this. Just remember that once you cut it off you can’t put it back on. Cut a little at a time until you think it looks great.

Almost finished.

Wrap the top of your wreath with the pink chevron tulle ribbon. Secure on the back with straight pins.

It’s time to hang your Spring Wreath and be proud of what YOU’VE created!
{Use a piece of the pink tulle ribbon cut to about 48 inches and tie your wreath to your wreath hanger. Don’t forget to fluff your bow!}
