Today I have a fun craft that I hope you gals will like. It’s pretty, pink, and—the best part—can be finished during your little one’s nap time. Although, truth be told, most days I’m napping right along with Harper, trying to catch up on sleep since I haven’t been sleeping all that great with this growing belly and the aches that come with it. But today, I had a crazy surge of energy so after our regular library run, Harper and I made a detour to Michaels to pick up some supplies.
What exactly are we making? A spring floral wreath! In my mind, I was going to buy a grapevine wreath with lots of bright faux flowers to go around it, however when I saw these monogram letter wreaths on sale for $2.99 (compared to $8.99) I knew I had to get one of those instead. Plus, what southern girl doesn’t love a good monogram? After I grabbed the monogram wreath, Harper and I went to the floral department (all stems were 40% off) and grabbed a handful of greenery and pink (H’s and my signature color, kind of like Elle Woods) accent flowers. After that, we made one final stop at Ulta (I mean, a girl can always use a new nail polish) then it was back home for lunch and a nap (for H). If you want to join me in making one of these oh-so-pretty wreaths, read below for what you’ll need and how to do it.
- Monogram wreath form
- Faux flowers
- Wire cutters
- White craft paint (to paint wreath form)
- Ribbon for bow
- Hot glue gun
Seriously y’all this may have been the easiest wreath I’ve ever made because all you’re doing is cutting, laying, and hot gluing. Easy peasy. The first thing you’ll want to do is paint the wreath form white (or whatever color you’d like) and let dry. Afterwards, arrange the florals and lay them on top of the wreath in a pattern you like. It may take some rearranging to get the look you’re going for.
Once that’s done, you can start using your wire cutters to trim the wire stems and then hot glue the faux stems/flowers into place. I worked in a counter clockwise fashion just to make sure I didn’t forget to hot glue anything into place. Once everything was glued down there was still something missing so I grabbed some burlap and added a burlap bow to top it off.
I hope this gives you some inspiration for a new spring wreath! I’d love to see what creations you come up with so feel free to post on my Facebook page, The Sassy Momma or tag your picture on IG– #thesassymomma.
