Spring Flower Initial Wreath

As the weather warms up so should your door décor!  Flowers are perfect for the season and wooden initials are a super easy way to add a personal touch.  Make your own and wait for your neighbors to ask where you got your wreath.

Materials

  1. Cut your bunch of long stem flowers in half. Take one half of the flowers and attach them to your wreath using florist wire.  Bend the flowers to fit the shape of your wreath.  Attach points with florist wire and/or wind the flowers into the wreath.

  1. Repeat with the second half of your long stem flowers going the opposite direction on your wreath.

  1. Cut your bunched flowers so that the stems are about 4″ long. Arrange the flowers into a cluster at the point where the two groups of long stemmed flowers overlap.  Simply stick the stems into the wreath and make sure it is secure.

  1. Attach florist wire (about 8″ per piece) to the back of your wooden letter using hot glue. Note the points where the letter touches the wreath and place hot glue and wire at these locations.  I ended up with three placed in a diagonal on my H.

  1. Let the hot glue cool completely.
  2. Place your letter in the appropriate spot on your wreath. Wrap the wire around the wreath and twist it together to secure it in the back.  You can cut down the florist wire once you’re finished.

  1. Hang the wreath by the method of your choosing and enjoy!
