Flower Wreath Tutorial


Today I am sharing with you a tutorial on how to make this gorgeous flower wreath. My goal was to make a wreath that was neutral but would still add a pop of something pretty on our door. I went to the craft store and fell in love with these hydrangea bundles. I decided on the green and white combo to make it simple and elegant looking. Take a look below to learn how to make this for yourself.


I purchased two bundles of the hydrangeas.
Each bundle had 5 flowers on it, 3 large and 2 medium sized. 
I used a wire wreath because that is what I had. You could use a foam floral wreath as well. 


I first used wire cutters to cut off each flower down to about a one inch stub.
Then I pricked off many of the smaller leaves to use as accents around the flowers.


I then laid out the flowers on the wreath to get an idea how I wanted them to go.


Then I began hot gluing the flowers onto the wreath.





Once all the flowers were glued I placed the leaves on, spaced them out and glued them down as well.


TA-DA! All done!!


Thank you for taking a look. 
I hope this inspires you to add a little prettiness to your door!

  1. This is so pretty and simple, I may actually try it! I have no floral arranging skills other than to plant them outside and watch them grow. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I've made wreaths but not on a wire form. I am going to do this. Your wreath is so pretty and simple.I love making simple things with few steps. You make it look so easy and quick, another qualification for a project. The light green and white is perfect as it keeps it soft looking, not glaring. You are so talented at making wreaths, among other things. So glad you shared this project. Happy Easter and Spring

    1. Thank you very much. I am sure there are easier ways than using the wire form that is just what I had and I figured it wouldn't show as well. Thank you for your sweet comments and I hope you have a Happy Easter as well :)
